ABSTRACT The escape paths prey animals take following a predatory attack appear to be highly unpredictable – a property that has been described as ‘protean behaviour’. Here, we present a method of quantifying the escape paths of individual animals using a path complexity approach. When individual fish (Pseudomugil signifer) were attacked, we found that a fish's movement path rapidly increased in complexity following the attack. This path complexity remained elevated (indicating a more… Expand
