Bárbara Vargas Miranda, Gerardo J. Ceballos González


Abstract: We introduce a trap to capture alive gophers which is called "Vieyra Trap". In comparison to other designs, we found a success rate up to 75% larger than previous devices. Some advantages include the specific design for an endemic specie located in Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico (Cratogeomys zinseri), it can be easily installed, minor ecological risks, and low cost.
