Within a few miles of Laramie, the Department of Zoology and Physiology operates the Red Buttes Environmental Biology Laboratory, a 9,600-square-foot facility equipped to handle both aquatic and terrestrial vertebrates. An aquatic ecology and toxicology laboratory, uniquely designed to accommodate a wide range of test conditions of water flow, temperature and composition, is available within the facility. Animal holding and surgical rooms are specifically constructed to accommodate experimentation on small (e.g. mice, squirrels), medium (e.g. coyote, badger) and large (e.g. elk, bighorn sheep) mammals. Outdoor corrals and fish runs are also available on the 400-acre site.
