Effect of Cage Size on the Ontogeny of stereotyped Behavior in gerbils
by C. Wiedenmayer, 1995
^ You may want to look that article up and read the abstract. What do you think about it? They found that cage size alone didn't seem to impact the development of stereotypical digging in gerbils, so that means that the stereotype may be caused instead by lack of activities to do (like digging- remember, in the study they only increased cage side, not necessarily the amount of stuff to dig in).
So what do you think?
