First ever pics of endangered Spotted Deer

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Two of the world’s most endangered mammals living in the wild, the Visayan Warty Pig and Spotted Deer, have been photographed for the first time.

A team of British scientists used specialist photography to capture the species in the almost impenetrable, dense forests on the island of Negros, central Philippines.

Biologists say the rare, diminutive pigs are almost invisible to the eye due to the thickness of the forest.

During their “very tough” expedition earlier this month, the team, climbed nearly 5000 feet (1,500m) as they set up 20 “camera traps”.

While allowing the team of scientists, aided by local experts from the Philippines, to maintain their “minimum impact” expedition rules, it also meant they could photograph the animals in their natural environment without scaring them away.
