Tonic Immobility ... In Goats!
Through our lecture slides we've learned that animals can enter a state known as "tonic immobility." This state can be induced as a self-defense mechanism, since predators choose not to attack stationary prey, or by sensory overload. The goats in this video enter a brief moment of tonic immobility when startled -- one of natures more comic endeavors.

I think those goat videos are hilarious and it's interesting that silly viral videos can relate to our class.ReplyDelete
