Abstract. A durable, waterproof transmitter-collar cast in a mold and made of dental acrylic has proven successful in field tests on cottontail rabbits (Sylvilagus floridanus), snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus) and raccoons (Procyon lotor). It is fitted to the individual animal and attached around the neck, rather than over the head. With modification, it can probably be adapted for use with many other species.

Keywords. raccoon, Procyon lotor, Lagomorpha, radiotelemetry
