To collect research data biologists use a variety of methods to track and tag the animals they study. We are all aware of the 'chip' owners use to track their dogs and cats. The very same technology is used to identify huge komodo dragons and jaguars. Stickers placed on butterfly wings, color-coded, numbered bands attached to birds' legs and radio transmitting collars that follow elephant migration patterns are included in this gallery.
