This seems to be a categorical variale (Type A, Type B, Type Cm Type D), not a numerical.
and 1 nominal variable ( dolphins behaviour wether eating or social or resting and other)
How were those behaviours measured? E.g. did you watch each dolphin for a certain period of time, and every 5 minutes you recorded what he was doing at this time point? Or what else did you do?

And why did you post this question to "other siftware", is there a certain reason behind this?

With kind regards
