Gregarious Behavior of Juveniles of the Spiny Lobster, Panulirus Argus (Crustacea: Decapoda)
Abstract:Small juvenile Panulirus argus were gregarious in their utilization of cover under laboratory conditions, though aggressive encounters limited the extent of this cover-sharing. While walking in areas lacking cover, both under laboratory conditions and when released in situ, the juveniles formed queues which broke up when they reached cover or were threatened.
