Barnes Maze for Pouched Rat

This is a series of shots of me cleaning this Barnes Maze between behavioral observations of my research subjects, the African Giant Pouched Rat, Cricetomys ansorgei. The diameter of the table or Barnes Maze is 6 feet across, and is nearly feet off of the ground. Which is why I use an extended squeegee and have to circle the table to clean the entire surface. The clear box above is used to hold the animal between trials. That box is 18 cubic inches.
