A team of researchers at Yamagata University and Teikyo University of Science, in Japan, have recently developed a new roving biologger, or whale rover, which can travel along a sperm whale’s body surface and collect valuable behavioral data. Biologging entails the biological tracking of individual animals, typically by attaching small dataloggers directly to their bodies. It can be a very effective way of unfolding the mysteries of animal life, by collecting data and observations related to an animal’s behavior, motion, and biology.
