Camera trap database serves as objective records of an animal’s presence at a location, and information on activity patterns (from the date and time contained in the image), behaviour, and pelage characteristics that enable individual identification (Rovero et al., 2008). Remotely-triggered cameras are used for camera trapping that automatically take images of whatever moves in front of them. It utilizes the fixed digital cameras to capture images or videos of animals in wild, with as little human interference as possible, travelling in front of the camera’s infra-red sensors (Rovero et al., 2010).
