Peter and Carrie of Reptelligence are today’s guests. In this episode, we discuss the basics of animal training including classical and operant conditioning, learning history, and how behavior is shaped using positive reinforcement. We also discuss how these methods can be applied to reptiles. The Reptelligence team leaves us with examples of success stories they have had working with their own animals and provides the listeners with a few strategies to start implementing enrichment and training into your care routine.
