In a picture from the tenth most viewed National Geographic News photo gallery of 2009, a short-eared dog focuses on a camera trap in Peru's Amazon rain forest.

Camera traps photographed the jaguar, a giant armadillo, bush dogs, and more rare creatures as part of a biodiversity project in a remote and unstudied region of the country's northeast.
