Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate broadleaf/mixed forest
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Protection: national/state park
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "The park was established in 1997 on the site of an abandoned quarry after landscape remediation, and it is now covered with young vegetation consisting of pine and broad-leaved trees (52% of the area), grassland (35%), and ponds (5%). The surrounding area of the park was covered with old regenerating broad-leaved forests and conifer plantations"

Sampling comments: "A camera-trapping study was carried out every three months from October 2000 to July 2003, for a total of 12 censuses, three censuses for each of the four seasons. A census started in the late afternoon and required seven consecutive days. The total amount of trapping effort during the three-year study period was 200.4 camera-days. Five cameras were installed 1 m above the ground... at fixed camera stations along animal trails. The camera stations were 50 m or more apart within a radius of 200 m, and they were baited with raw peanuts in the shell... During each census, one roll of color print film (ISO 400; 36 exposures) was used for each camera"
exact trapping effort was 12.0 days
