Sampling comments: "The purpose of the survey in the 20122013 dry season was to investigate the presence of carnivores... Passive infrared digital cameras were mainly set on animal trails, footpaths, motorbike tracks and waterways... a total of 49 camera stations were set... Cameras were mounted approximately 3050 cm above ground on trees at least 1 km apart and set to operate for 24 hours each day. No stations were baited... we defined a camera trap record as an independent record if it occurred at least 30 minutes after a photograph of the same species at a given station"
