  1. Different animals in a population may exhibit different behaviors; these                can be analyzed by game theory models that treat individuals as pursuing different strategies.

  3. One possible personality trait is boldness -          , as reflected in the tendency to take risks.
  4. Risk-taking behavior such as predator inspection involves tradeoffs between        and benefits for the individual.
  5. Other personality traits have been studied in hyenas and even                such as octopuses.
