Hair samples from the horse, elk, deer, moose, and antelope; subcutaneous tissue from the moose and antelope; and cast and living skin of the rattlesnake were activated by exposure to a neutron flux. The resulting products were studied by pulse-height analysis. Differences in type and proportion of trace elements appear to be consistent within the species studied.
