Unique Mammals

Naturally, we mean "strange" in the best possible sense. We‚??ve included a range of mammals here that are particularly distinctive. This group includes elephants, armadillos, pangolins, and anteaters, as well as the diminutive tree shrews. While anteaters and armadillos spend a large part of their time traveling on the ground, pangolins are generally found in the trees and are therefore a rare detection at camera stations. Elephants are frequent photo subjects where they occur; the trick is to protect the cameras from their curiosity.
