Japanese term or phrase: 噛み付き
this term appears in a chart showing "異常産子率", I've just guessed it might indicate a piglet that bites itself.
Can you help me to find the appropriate term in English for this word?
Thank you so much!

Biting
Explanation:
Considering you are working with a chart, I would choose 'bite.' However, I don't know the full context of the text you are working with.

Excuse me, I meant to write that I would choose the word 'biting' for the chart.

Considering your chart lists not only birth defects but also external causes of death, etc., again, I would have to agree with your idea that this is related to tail-biting phenomenon.

Example sentence(s):
  • Tail biting behavior is related to low birth birth weight, low nutrition, and below average growth rate.
