Abstract:With the continuous development of science and technology, animal tracking technology has also been improved. The GPS-based animal tracker is powerful and accurate. However, for nocturnal hedgehogs with small size, unique morphology and behavior, solving the problems of equipment carrying and individual marking is very important. Here we designed a GPS backpack which consists of a GPS tracker and a hand-stitched cloth bag for the monitoring of long-eared hedgehog (Hemiechinus auritus). The bag was attached to the back of H. auritus with all-purpose adhesive for easy placement and replacement of GPS tracking device. From April 28 to May 3, 2019, 17 H. auritus were tracked and 15 were recaptured. A total of 3 226 valid GPS data points were obtained. We recorded the normal behavior, natural movements across vegetation and nest occupancy, and the changes in body mass. No significant negative effect associated with the backpack was assessed. In addition, we have improved the individual marking method. In summary, we believe that the backpack design and individual marking method is a simple and economical method for short-term monitoring of H. auritus.
