Examined the visual depth perception of infant and adult syrian hamsters in 2 experiments using a total of 330 light-reared and 263 dark-reared ss. Findings indicate that (a) the visual depth perception of an s was efficient shortly after its eyes opened, (b) the photic conditions during rearing had no effect on its effective depth perception, (c) the cue mediating its depth perception was motion parallax, and (d) the guided locomotion was more tactually than optically dominated.
