dc.description.abstract A long term behavioural study was undertaken on laboratory-reared naked mole-rats. The main objective of the study was to provide a detailed qualitative and quantitative description of the behavioural and morphological development of naked mole-rats from birth through to adulthood. This study laid an empirical foundation for the subsequent testing of hypotheses pertaining to within and between colony conflict as well as for a study on the existence of a rare dispersal phenotype within colonies. en_ZA
