Squidsalad Posted September 9, 2015 Share Posted September 9, 2015 http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0000529 Basically,cockroaches were classically conditioned to drool when presented with a smell they associated with a reward. I wondered if my roaches were drooling on me because they favored me rather than being afraid. They could be associating us with a delicious reward. I've been drooled on twice with two different species. It was the same behavior both times. A roach would put its mouthparts on my fingers and drool excessively. I thought it was an interesting study and idea. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
