"Status goes to the brain", Science Bits cartoon by Donna Okino, The Boston Globe, March11,1996
What do you see happening here in this cartoon by Donna Okino? Two crayfish fight, one wins, and the other sulks away. Typical reaction, right? The winning (or dominant) crawfish has a tendency towards "tail flipping" while the loser (or subordinate) does not.
What is tail flipping, you might ask? GREAT QUESTION!
