Results of Generalized Linear Models to identify factors associated variations in the anaesthetic periods, of the association between parameter estimator (β) for GLMz where in categorical variables “gender” “age class” and “type trap” the reference value of the parameter estimator was 0 for gender “female”, age class “yearling” and type trap “cage trap”

Body condition was measured as chest circumference to body length ratio. The proportion of explained deviance (Deviance difference) in each model is shown. P values are shown: * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001.
