Sampling comments: "two grids of 15 digital camera traps (UOVision IR+, UOVision Technology, Shenzhen, China) were set sequentially at a density of 1 camera per km2. The first grid was located in the northern, remote part of the Reserve (Fig. 1), at 1, 653-1, 848 m, and was active during 15 December 2013–14 January 2014. The second grid was located in the southern part of the Reserve and was active during 20 January–25 February 2014, at 372–1, 564 m"
