I am attempting to collect data on the 3-D kinematics of ape locomotion.
Unfortuantely, apes are very intelligent, strong, dextrous, and apt to do
just the thing that researchers want to avoid. I need to place markers
on the apes. The markers must be reflective spheres. Any such markers
are vulnerable to being torn off by the subjects. Does anyone have
experience with spherical markers or marking techniques which are
resistant to tampering?

I will publish a summary of responses. John Cantrell
