What do Malaysian elephants think about being caught on camera?

A video recorded in the forest of Peninsular Malaysia has shown how one group of elephants reacted when they discovered they had been framed! Elephants aren’t particularly keen on being caught on camera and have a reputation for damaging camera traps.

This footage, shot by a hidden camera belonging to the research project MEME – The Management and Ecology of Malaysian Elephants – captures the moment when the device is spotted.

MEME is a joint project between The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus and the Department of Wildlife and National Parks Peninsular Malaysia (PERHILITAN).  For more details about the project visit www.meme-elephants.org or www.facebook.com/MEME.project.
