Figure S1: Schematic drawing of the modified hole board (mHB, a) and the object recognition test (ORT, b). (a) The unprotected area (board) is illuminated with a red (50 lux, experiment 1) or white (120 lux, experiment 2) stage light hanging directly above the test set-up (surrounding box 1–5 lux red light). (b) Free exploration of the test apparatus was done without any objects being present. One day after familiarization with the test environment, the objects were placed in the test arena and the ORT was performed.

Table S1: Overview of the behavioural results under red light and white light conditions for the first (trial 1), the 20th (trial 20) and the last trials (trial 40) in experiment 1 and the first (trial 1) and last trials of experiment 2 (trial 20)
