When camera traps are out in the field, there is always the risk of animals wanting to investigate them. For this reason, the cameras in Balule have special protective metal boxes designed to protect them from as much as possible. No one expected it to be put to the test so soon, the following series of photos shows an elephant not just investigating, but trying to chew and remove the camera. It turns out, the boxes protect against this, and the camera was left undamaged, just facing a slightly different direction!
