##### Body Temperature Series of Beaver 2

Reynolds (1994) describes a small part of a study of the long-term
temperature dynamics of beaver *Castor canadensis* in
north-central Wisconsin. Body temperature was measured by telemetry
every 10 minutes for four females, but data from a one period of less
than a day for each of two animals is used there.

##### Usage

`beav2`

##### Format

The `beav2`

data frame has 100 rows and 4 columns.
This data frame contains the following columns:

`day`

Day of observation (in days since the beginning of 1990), November 3--4.

`time`

Time of observation, in the form

`0330`

for 3.30am.`temp`

Measured body temperature in degrees Celsius.

`activ`

Indicator of activity outside the retreat.
