Kinds of Stress Response

There are four kinds of stress response. Some reduce an animal's state of being; others enhance it. Understress occurs in simple environments that lack certain features (social companions, play items) (stimulus underload). Sometimes animals give behavioral signs of understress (lethargy; exaggerated, repetitive activity apparently devoid of purpose (stereotypy); some other disturbed behavior). Eustress (good stress): situations of extraordinary responses, but which the animal finds tolerable or even enjoyable. Overstress: environmental situations that provoke minor stress responses. Distress (bad stress): circumstances that provoke major stress responses. Judging from signs of negative emotions (anxiety, fear, frustration, pain), distress causes an animal to suffer, but to what extent is not yet known.
