Sumatra, Indonesia

A Sumatran tiger is caught on film by a camera triggered by body heat in the jungles of Raiu, Central Sumatra.

Activated by temperature sensors, the cameras photograph wildlife and identify tigers in the area. One far-ranging tiger has attacked and damaged three cameras stationed by the international conservation group WWF in less than ten days.
