First photos of rare deer
The large-antlered muntjac - a deer from the Laos-Vietnam border, was captured for the first time in its natural habitat using camera traps in Nakai Nam Theun National Protected Area (NNT NPA) (Laos).
It seems remote camera work is yielding more and more - and more interesting - results around the globe. Previously on WLMD, leopards, rabbits, possums and unknown mammals (likely civets) have all been announced after remote camera detection such as with this muntjac.
(There will be more to come on WLMD regarding remote camera fieldwork soon...)
Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is heading a program in Laos to help protect a number of rare and extraordinarily distinctive creatures including the Annamite striped rabbit.
