The purpose of this work is the classification of the main properties of the mobility of the species Clausucalanus furcatus. This classification is then used to propose a model for the motion of the specimens divided in a fast regime a slow regime, with an ulterior distinction between environments in which food is present or absent. For the slow regime the specimens appear to move mostly upwards or downwards for short time periods, whereas the motion in the fast regime is compatible with the Lévy flight foraging hypothesis. In environments where food is scarce C. Furcatus also appears to adopt some energy conservation strategies, increasing the time between more expensive activities such as long jumps.
