Researchers in Australia are trying a veterinary glue to secure tiny transmitters to the backs of bandicoots to learn more about the nocturnal marsupials' behavior. Tail tags and collars haven't worked, so researchers hope the glue will do the trick. They will also try affixing transmitters to tiny harnesses to determine which apparatus the animals like better. Bandicoots are considered extinct in the wild, but the species is maintained in large, fenced-in areas in Australia.
