Elusive animals caught on camera

Forget YouTube or reality TV - this is where candid cameras really come into their own. The first ever global camera-trap survey of mammals has revealed rare glimpses of various seldom-seen animals in their natural habitats. The study, carried out Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring Network (TEAM) at Conservation International, recorded 105 species in seven protected areas across the Americas, Africa and Asia. Footage taken over a four-year period provided intimate portraits of endangered elephants, jaguars, cougars, gorillas and more - but also highlighted the devastating impact of habitat loss and smaller reserves on these species.

Take a look at these rare, amazing images in the gallery below - simply click an image to open.
