Example of accelerometers mounts for female grey seals. Example of attachment set up for a a head-mounted accelerometer, and b a torso-mounted accelerometer in addition to a head mount, contained within a custom-designed ballistic nylon footprint on a female grey seal. Tag-frame axes labelled with arrows pointing in direction of positive acceleration values for each axis (X, Y, and Z). Each accelerometer was configured to measure ± 2 g at 50 Hz (2015) and 25 Hz (2016). Heart rate monitor also pictured in panel B as part of larger study design
