Summary: 
Cotton spool tracking of the mysterious and partly fossorial shrew-opossums (Caenolestes spp.) in South America. The cotton spool has been attached to this captured individual which is about to be released. The thread will later be followed by eager researchers to see if the animal stays on the ground, uses burrows or goes in and out of certain types of microhabitat, until the spool runs out or breaks. The data obtained in this way are limited to the length of the spool line (often 50–100 m), but many species’ basic movements – especially for some rare New Guinean and South American carnivorous marsupials – are known only as a result of using this method.
