Radio Collar Or Transmitter

Collar with a batterypowered transmitter, placed around the neck of a mammal for the purpose of tracking the animal’s movement and/or monitoring several physiological variables. Because primates have greater dexterity than other mammals and can remove such collars, these types of biotelemetry devices have had to be modified; one modification is a radio backpack, although a second monkey can help remove the pack from the tracked animal.
