Acceleration signatures on each of the three axes (x, y, and z) for stereotypical leaping (a), foraging (b), and trotting (c) behaviors in Fox1. Note that amplitude scales across both axes and behaviors are made different to facilitate visualization of waveform features. Leaping is in general characterized by two large, positive-going peaks on the z-axis separated by a consistent time delay; foraging by signals of similar magnitude and irregular morphology on all three axes; and trotting by signals with strong oscillatory components on all three axes
