These animals were anesthetized while measurements were recorded. Also, the animals were under the direct supervision of highly specialized and caring individuals at all times.
The research EarthWatch and Dr. Dollar and Dr. Julie Pomerantz (and MANY others) conduct has made a tremendous positive impact on saving these rare and amazing creatures.
Through these efforts the local Malagasy people have learned to live along side all the animals in their environment.
If you have questions on the care and handling of these animals, or any other matters, feel free to drop me a note.
