from the last few months, dates aren't accurate but temperature should be. When I am putting one near ground level I always try and put it where I don't expect elephants to walk, perhaps a trail which looks too thin for them to be using, because I have had elephants smash up a camera before. But elephants seem to be everywhere in Khao Yai, I can't avoid them. Apart from deer I get more elephants than anything else. Would like to get some cats on the cameras, not sure where to place them for best results? Does Khao Yai even have leopards anymore? Searches only turn up clouded leopard.

Cool pics! Nice quality as well.

There are no leopards in Khao Yai nor the whole of the Dong PhayaYen - Khao Yai forest complex. Nobody really knows why this is so.

I have a bit of a history with camera traps myself, and you just have to take it on the nose as to the elephants. In my experience it's the males that wilfully attack the cameras, whilst the females (family groups) have an inquisitiveness to them and touch and feel them but don't usually attack them.

Camera trapping ends up being quite expensive where elephants are :+)

Some more.  It was a new camera and the default shutter length setting was too long - images came out a little blurry.  Lesson learned.  First time I've camera trapped a bear.
