Sampling comments: "Camera trapping locations were selected by dividing the total area of Wilds property into ten equal sections... Camera surveys were completed weekly from February 2015 through July 2015... Bushnell Trophy Cams were used... Cameras were mounted approximately 25-50 cm above the ground... A new individual occurrence was documented when an animal entered the view approximately 5 minutes after the previous individual left the view screen"
