Movies in mini-website. The second file is Additional file2.zip, which is a ZIPPED folder "miniwebsite" with file index.html (HTML) in which GIF animations can be viewed. The GIF animations reside in subfolder "miniwebsite/movies". The html file (index.html) can be opened with any web-browser and shows links to three pages showing the GIF animations: (i) Animatic S1: Solitary foraging, (ii) Animatic S2: Traveling pairs foraging, and (iii) Animatic S3: Opportunistic grouping individuals that are foraging. Descriptions of the movies are given in "index.html". These animations should start playing as soon as the link to the page with the animation is opened using a web-browser.
