Using Trail Cameras to Capture Data

               
                       FORAGING ON THE GROUND - WHAT ARE THEY EATING? 

                                                                  


Although the samango monkey is mostly restricted to forest habitat, they are sometimes seen foraging on the ground hence using trail cameras to obtain data can be useful for understanding where they are present, behavior, troop size, other species coexisting with them in a specific area and diet.   






Above: A number of species have been captured at the same spot
