    • Abstract

       

      Nesting material like paper is also shredded, or torn and chewed by the Indian gerbil,Tatera indica indica (Hardwicke). Shredded paper is used in lining the interior of nest-boxes; and in its absence, for making nests at corners of cage. An important component of nest-building activity, shrodding also acts with other behaviour patterns.
