The Hunt Is On
The Moultrie game camera has been having a great run lately. It was my first camera and while it might be old, slow and take unclear pictures, it still manages to pleasantly surprise me from time to time.
It wasn't long before I got my first full body picture of a Caracal. I think there must be a very dense population of Caracal on Tygerberg. I only started camera trapping on Tygerberg this month and I already got 3 "sightings" of Caracal. They seem to be much more common here than compared to Kirstenbosch. In fact here at Tygerberg I have thus far photographed more Caracals than anything else (except for Four-striped Grass Mice)...
The Bushnell have been having a hard time. I placed the camera in a new location last Monday and by Tuesday it managed to fill the SD card with images of warm leaves... Hopefully things turn around this week for the Bushnell.
