Sampling comments: "From May to August 2014, we surveyed the Nile Delta area of MFCA and the area to the east using 15 infrared motion‐triggered camera traps... e moved cameras twice during the study period creating a total of 45 sites with 15 sites each within three disturbance strata. During each subsurvey period, cameras were placed at five sites in each stratum. All sites were >2 km apart"
