Social Distance In Animals And Birds
Social Distance: Non-human species, i.e. animals-birds .. have a clear sense that during times of illness they should stay away from their species or group (social distance) otherwise it can destroy their entire species. Man has been aware of this from time to time during infections. The corona fully explains its importance. Made him understand the need to confine himself. This knowledge has become more and more worldwide during the recent corona epidemic. Animals no longer have to be aware of social distance, but adopt different methods for it. Vampire bats, one of 1,400 species of bats, practice passive social distance during times of illness. This species sucks the blood of mammals. Because there are not many nutrients in the blood .. they are not easily available. These bats that live in groups share food among themselves. For this one must touch the other’s mouth. This removes any of these organisms as soon as they are known to be unhealthy.
Staying away from social care in March of this year, according to a research published in the journal ‘Science’, when a bat becomes ill, it is isolated from the group. Also, it separates itself until it is completely healed. This is called passive social distance.
An article published in the journal ‘Plus One’ in April .. Although social attire is important to strengthen interrelationships among mandrel monkeys, it also reflects status in society. Therefore, it is a very important aspect of their social life. But when the monkey’s digestive system is infected with parasites, its health deteriorates, and it stops its dressing habit until it is healthy to prevent its disease from spreading to others. The other monkeys also stay away from him.
Clever ant world ..
There are about 20,000 species of ants in the world. The species studied are said to follow an active social distance. As you know, ants live in groups. So if an ant is infected, the whole group is destroyed. To avoid such danger, many species have adopted an active social distance in society through evolution. Here the sick ant leaves the group and splits. Without group support it means to kill oneself because the ants are helpless. It is not wrong to say that ants do not hesitate to sacrifice themselves for their colony.
Shrimp: Don’t worry about the risk
There are some non-human races that adopt another method to create social distance. If anyone in the Caribbean spiny lobster group (a variety of shrimp) gets sick, the healthy members leave their hiding places to protect themselves. Sometimes it is one thing for this strategy to be excessive, it is another to fall prey to other predatory creatures. But to prevent malignant viruses, they consider this risk to be less dangerous.
Discipline of bees
This is a little different in the case of bees. Members of the community, they can do anything because the safety of the queen bee is of utmost importance. So, more conscious action is being taken here. When a sick companion spotted a fly, it did not escape. Other flies will kill it. They drive a sick bee out of their habitat. That bee never came back.
