Veterinary researcher watches a Yucatan miniature pig (Sus sp.) choose what food to eat by pressing one of three dispenser buttons. This allows researchers to quantify the animals' dietary preferences and the point at which they feel satiated. This work is part of a study on hormonal regulation and feeding behaviour in farm animals. Photographed at INRA, France.
