Unexpected Trail Cam Footage

By Rachel

Welcome to the wonderful world of trail cam footage, where researchers and hunters use remote, motion-sensing cameras to study animals in their natural habitat. Unlike pristine, breathtaking wildlife photography – where each shot is carefully lined up and captured with crystal clear pixels – the footage from trail cams is usually messy, grainy, and on occasion, incredibly goofy.

Whether a bear is up to mischief or a deer is getting a bit too curious, trail cams capture some of the silliest, secret antics of various animals in their natural habitats. These photos showcase what goes on in the animal kingdom when they think no one’s watching.
