Animal behaviour research was the original reason we started making realistic animal models. Through time, our models have found other educational or hobby purposes. But at the same time, our models have slowly started to appear in more and more scientific literature.

This page serves as a catalog of these publications where Savi Made models were used as part of the research. (To clarify: in most cases, we have no affiliations or contributions to the research beyond producing the models. Except for Gardner et al. 2021, where Lincoln Savi was a co-author on that publication)
