After one day, my madtoms were back to their corner vertical positions.
Maybe there's slightly increased flow there and they like the stimulation it

Or maybe territoriality is the answer. If so, I think it may be expressed
chemically rather than physically because there's ample cover to keep them
separated and there are physical barriers between cover objects. By the
way, these are adult brindled madtoms.

Excuse me, gotta get the phone.....

...Oh, that was Jim Bunning. He says everything will be okay if I just move
them to my toilet. Thanks for the biological opinion, Senator!
