Animals in Action
When researchers want to see animals in action we might use a trail camera instead of sitting and waiting for hours when the animals may never show up until dark and our eyes cannot even see the animal well. Let’s say we found a badger burrow called a sett. We can follow the pathway in and out of the sett and place a camera where the badgers go underground.
Researcher's or hunter's check the time and go back at the proper time to have a chance to see or trap the animal. Here are some of the trail camera pictures we got. What are the advantages and disadvantages cameras for research?
