          The behavior of animals that respond to stimuli in early life by remembering stimuli, such as objects, sounds and moving creature that subjects them to recognize and respond by walking the object.It is well to living in a natural birth because those things are the first offspring born to a mother or an animal in the same species. Therefore, animal behavior and follow moving objects, moving from birth to help increase the chances of survival and memorable creatures of the same species as another mechanism that helps prevent the mixing of species.

      It is believed that each animal will recognize creatures of the same species without having to learn or is Innate behavior.But the study and the experiment of Dr.Konrad Lorenz in 1935. It is clear that some creatures can recognize the same kind of creature is a learned behavior that requires experience in life before you remember.

         The trial of Dr.Konrad Lorenz, the Austrian zoologist Which observe and record the behavior of animals such as birds and have studied the behavior of Greylaggoose since 1935-38. He recalled the time that Goose summers.Major reasons that Dr. Konrad Lorenz Greylaggoose chosen because geese species is a form of life as a family. (see Family Video geese).

          The observed behavior of geese Dr.Konrad Lorenz found. Gosling had seen the mother, which is the first thing that can be emitted, and when it moves out of the egg. Gosling remembers the shape of the object and rooted in what is seen as the mother or newborn is the same as life went on, follow that behavior. This is the mechanism that Gosling can remember what the same species. Because the natural mother goose will hatch and saw Gosling is the first. Studies of Dr.Konrad Lorenz indicates that the parent or recognize creatures of the same kind of goose is learned behavior requires prior experience to be recognized even creatures of the same species or not.

      Dr.Konrad Lorenz tried by a mother goose eggs until the close of the residents pointed out that the goose is a goose egg he even brought out of the area.Gosling make visually Dr.Konrad Lorenz was the first thing that has impressed Dr.Konrad. Lorenz was a creature of the same type or a mother. They went on and tried to emulate the behavior of Dr.Konrad Lorenz.

         The study found that over time, Gosling will recognize and accept the adoptive mother of a species will have a time limit, known as Critical peroid. Which the beings behave in such crisis times, each has a different out. Critical peroid a significant period of time, if at all, animals do not show this behavior, although efforts induced by any stimuli. For example, Gosling will have to impress. 36 hours after hatching from the egg. If after this period, we will not be learning any imprinting. Although the stimuli It would be mother own.

           Benefits of Imprinting behavior allows animals to be raised by both parents and allowing them to breed in the same species do not breed different species.


Dr. Konrad Lorenz
(born Nov. 7, 1903, Vienna, Austria—died Feb. 27, 1989, Altenburg),


Gosling hatched the natural on the Mother Goose was first recognized,
it makes walking and swimming as Mother Goose.


Gosling was born imprinting behavior and learn how Dr.Konrad Lorenz is a species with them.


Gosling is trying to emulate the behavior and manner of creatures thought to be the same species.
