Critter Cam 2

Well we are continuing to set up “Critter Cam” our infrared camera most nights when we’re out bush. Here’s what we’ve discovered in the past couple of weeks that has been creeping around in the dead of night:

1. A dingo. Taken in Litchfield National Park. The shot was taken right next to our van and we were still awake at the time but heard nothing.

2. A cane toad. Its very small but if you look in the bottom left section of the image you can see a cane toad. This was taken at Daly River where cane toads have wiped out many native animals.

3. A bandicoot. This little bandicoot was snapped a few frames after the cane toad at Daly River. Hopefully it didn’t go near the toad.

5. A bower bird. Taken at Latram River in Arnhem Land. A number of bower birds were bopping around our campsite making bizarre shrill calls which sounded like R2D2. They are hard to get photos of so I set up the Critter Cam during the day to capture one.

4. A possum? I think this is a possum but am open to suggestions if it is something else. Taken at Howard Springs near Darwin.
