Snow leopards, tapirs, oriental storks and many others feature in WWFs new collection. Its camera traps are wildlife friendly, as they cause little environmental disturbance, while producing permanent, verifiable records of some of the worlds rarest animals.

The technology can also give scientists vital insights into population numbers and trends at a time when poaching has reportedly increased

3. My favorite of all time is the Pallas's cat

A camera had been set up outside what looked like it might be a den, but no one was sure what, if anything, was in residence. Then this happened.



I can't find the original video, which had the cat exploring it completely, then knocking it over.

Pallas's cat is about the size of a house cat and 100% bad attitude. You try to pet one, it will have your arm off and beat you to death with it.

4. They are amazing! I'm so glad they are good at defending themselves, as they are so small!

Thank you for sharing this gruff-looking little one!
