Special Skills
I have captured 2,877 individuals from 27 nonhuman primate species (Alouatta fusca, Alouatta palliata, Alouatta pigra, Alouatta seniculus insulanus, Alouatta seniculus seniculus, Ateles geoffroyi, Ateles paniscus, Avahi laniger, Brachyteles arachnoides, Cebus capucinus, Cercocebus albigena, Eulemur fulvus collaris, Eulemur fulvus rufus, Eulemur fulvus sanfordi, Eulemur rubriventer, Hapalemur aureus, Hapalemur griseus, Indri indri, Lemur catta, Macaca fascicularus, Pithecia pithecia, Procolobus kirkii , Propithecus diadema diadema, Propithecus diadema edwardsi, Propithecus tattersalli, Propithecus verrauxi coquereli, Varecia variegata variegata), four white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), and four individuals from two feline species (Felis concolor and Panthera onca).
A total of 214 Prosimians have been darted with 4 deaths (1.9% mortality rate) and 2,663 Anthropoids with 44 deaths (1.7% mortality rate). Howlers account for 2,492 of the individuals captured with 38 deaths (1.6% mortality rate). The mortality rate for all captures is 1.7% (48 deaths of 2,877 captures).
