From the Bushnell logo underneath I suppose they are the GoPro cameras. Which are easily stolen by the intended 'prey':

O-Dog,

I have NOT send you a PM

It would be amazing to see what happens at night and where as this could determine if we can start a new 'drive/activity' especially at the time the animal/s are more active and certain behavioural patters can be recorded.


Thanx dont worry, I have NOT received it.

These camera traps are the best thing since....

Nature Conservation recently put some up on our place to try to identify a mysterious predator causing costly damage.

Not sure we id'd the predator but camera's picked up porcupine, cape clawless otter, serval, caracal and jackal. One camera even gave us shots of an elephant rock shrew.

I have received details (prices, models etc) on these camera's. Free to PM me if you want details.

This looks awesome . Thanks to the generous mite

Hopefully the animals don't like the cameras too like those camera-stealing lions,or if they do that it would be found.

The generous mite will be leaving the park today; I will ask if I could mention his name on the Forum. There are three of the staff at Twee Rivieren which are looking at buying cameras for them self (Bio Technician, Section Ranger and I) so we will have some to play with and try and get some stunning pictures to all of you.
We will be collecting the cams this morning and download last night’s events, so let’s hope for the elusive cats, or even Caracal or Pangolin

I’m one of those who would love to get more info on the cameras used…. :pray: :pray:
Have been trying find out about this type of thing for quite some time…want to use it at my waterhole in Marloth….
Does it work with a flash at night….does that not scare the animals away from the waterhole (one of my concerns using it at my bush house)….is their alternatives to a flash?
Will it pickup something like a python?

BTW, to make the discussion on the camera itself “legal” on the forum….maybe it can be moved to the Photography section? :wink:

There was a thread ages ago in Cape Parks where a forumite had set up a camera trap. I'll go see if I can find it.

I knew I'd seen something.

Camera Traps on Table Mountain.

I haven't checked the blog out to see if it's still active but may give more information for others.
