Movie S1
This file illustrates the Preference Test. The movie (in 10 times of the original speed) shows the focal female shuttled between different compartments in the preference cage and stayed in the proximity of the two males.
Movie S2
This file illustrates the Observing phase. The movie shows that females observed the males operating the problem boxes in the problem-solving group and females observed an eating male or a non-eating male in the control group. During the observation period, the female could only see one male, an opaque screen separated the female from the other male.
