In trying to come to terms with all the action that happens in the area surrounding JAWAI Leopard Camp, we have recently put a few camera traps up in cleverly chosen areas. It’s quite fun to walk around looking for potential hotspots of animal activity. We use game-trails, scrapes, droppings, pugmarks and other tell-tale signs as clues on where the areas are that the animals are using. The cameras have the potential to teach us too about behaviour and movement patterns of various animals.
The camera traps allow us to get a sneak peek into the secret world in which we are merely spectators. They are always ON, allowing us to see what walks nearby when we are enjoying fine cuisine around the campfire, tucked up in bed, or relaxing by the swimming pool.
Every once in a while we will post pictures that have been taken from our camera traps. This will give you an idea of the animals we see here at JAWAI.
Lets have a look on what walked in front of our cameras last week…
What will we capture this week on the hidden cameras?
