Smile, you're on candid camera.
University of Michigan researchers have captured thousands of wildlife "selfies" with special motion-triggered capture traps as part of the Michigan ZoomIn project.
The effort to get a snapshot of the state's wildlife is spread across three sites, including the U-M Biological Station which is located on a 10,000-acre property in Michigan's lower peninsula.
According to U-M, the wildlife survey uses 150 digital cameras over three locations. Studying how the state's meat-eating animals differ from site to site is the goal of the project.
"We think we know exactly where these animals are in our state, but we don't. These communities are dynamic, not static. Things are shifting and changing constantly," stated one of the U-M wildlife ecologists in a press release.
