|There are a few boxes, but not enough for every site. Thus, we must haul them about in a cart. This is Matt.|
|The Lone Marmoteer. |
|F in the box. |
Between trials, we have to clean the box with vinegar and water to ensure marmots don't get scent cues from each other. Problem is, I'm 5'2"ish...and the box is 3' deep. This means I can't reach the floor, where the marmots sweat, pee, and poo, by just leaning in. Instead, I have to go in and out like a test subject, through the small, small door the marmots use.
|My P.I. (Dr. Blumstein) described this as 'precious'.|
