#### Abstract

A new approach is suggested which allows to combine the advantages of
methods based on Kolmogorov complexity with classical methods of
testing of statistical hypotheses. As distinct from other approaches
to analysis of different sequences by means of Kolmogorov complexity,
we stay within the framework of mathematical statistics. As examples,
we consider behavioural sequences of animals (ethological ``texts'')
testing the hypotheses whether the complexity of hunting behaviour in
ants and rodents depends on the age of an individual.
