Small Mammal Marking Study

Undergraduate Research Students Tyler Bridgehouse and Grace Nussbaum have been busy marking and monitoring small mammals since the beginning of the Fall 2016 semester.  They are comparing different brands of temporary animal hair dyes in comparison to permanent ear tags.  The use of these new dyes show promise for small mammal studies lasting many weeks, and these dyes have less of an impact on mammal health in comparison to ear tags.
