Tiger, clouded leopard and everything...

Don't know if this link was here before:

WWF still cameras in Sumatra, Cambodia and central America. Tiger biting camera, clouded leopards, green peacock, adjutant stork and everything...

Is it just me, or anybody else feels them more exciting than zillion of perfect photos of tame animals? You almost can feel the thrill of night jungle, rustling leaves and rare animal appearing quietly...

Great link, must enjoyable, especially the Tiger attacking the camera!

I was actually in the camera trapping area in Cambodia last week, saw 2 Gaur just as close as the camera picked them up, a truely wonderful area that WWF and WCS are controlling remarkably well, still some great forest left and good patrol teams.

Sumatra next month..........

Indeed some great links.

I really liked the photo of the Elds deer, among the first and probably only decent photo which exist of this very rare subspecies.

Type in "Orang Pendek" on Google. The Holy Grail of the remote camera users in Sumatra.

Forget it. One photo shows dipslaying Argus Pheasant - something probably never photographed in the wild before.
