  1. ” indicates inclusion of a behaviour to be categorised in a given model and “✕” indicates exclusion. Behaviour descriptions are provided in Table 1. “Head movement” = behaviours incorporating biting, eating, or sniffing; “Sedentary” = behaviours incorporating crouching, lying, sitting, or standing; “Moving stalk” = Walking stalk and Trotting stalk; “Active” = locomotory behaviours; “Inactive” = non-locomotory behaviours except Head movement
