This blog is predominately about camera trapping in California. We camera trap to save our souls and to teach primary school students about biology and conservation. We will also touch on other camera trapping news and musings, sets from afar, mediocre herpetology, sucky birding, and other natural history discussions.

Javan Rhino Caught on Cam

Javan Rhinos were caught on camera trap.  One female was not pleased. Follow the link for video.
The rhinos have appeared twice on cameras one month after the devices were installed in the Ujung Kulon National Park in the westernmost region of Java island, with one rhino mother charging a camera and damaging it.
"With fewer than 60 Javan rhinos left in the wild, we believe this footage was well worth the risk to our equipment," said Adhi Rachmat Hariyadi, who leads WWF-Indonesia's project in the national park.
Maybe they need some bear boxes for them.

UPDATE: Just realized this is 2+ year old footage.  Still cool and new to me, but not new.  Maybe some newer photos and information in this HuffPo article.
