Touch/Tactile
 

What does the animal feel? What surfaces does it walk on, lie on, and touch?

 

Consider the following:

 
  • Flooring: slippery tile surfaces, rubber matting, or carpet
  • Surfaces which are uneven or unstable such as a scale, loose flooring or gravel
  • Temperature of surfaces - surfaces like metal, concrete, and tile can hold heat or cold. Watch out for extreme temperature differences between surfaces and the air
