Unread postby M.Paxton » Tue Dec 11, 2012 1:12 pm

Greetings All

As promised here i will post pics from our camera traps that we have situated around the park. We use them to mointor animals and human movements, so behave.
We have captured allsorts of intresting things on the cameras over the last year and i will slowly post pics of the older pics and some of the new ons as time goes.

Here Mr. Baboon took a liking to a camera and removed it and took a couple of self portraits.
