Augrabies Trap-Cams

Unread postby Augrabies Guru » Thu Jul 11, 2013 12:27 pm

You can now tune in for close up sightings of not only general game but also those secretive one's.
Have place them out for a trial run,as soon as our system is up and running again I will start posting.
By the way have anybody ever seen close up's of a dassie rat. :) .

I will also mainly focus to see if I can get our secretive leopards, but the possibilities is endless.

I had the trap cam one's at a porcupine den close to the restcamp, got three porcupines also a very young one, but the pics are to white,that's part of the trial, has to be far to get decent pics for night time, also depend what you are looking for.

@ lion queen, that's salt.
