Sampling comments: "we conducted three sessions of camera trapping during the dry seasons of 2008, 2009 and 2010... we only had six camera traps during the first two sessions... In 2010, we had enough camera traps (twelve) to use a transect strategy. For the third session, camera traps were set along transects of 4-5 km, at intervals of 0.5-1 km... camera traps were established in 36 locations" and "were not baited or lured... We used the 'capture' model (Cuddeback Digital; Non Typical, Inc., Green Bay, WI)" (recorded number of traps is the weighted average)
