Our Trap Camera Project has been contributed by several people and organization to capture and monitor the wildlife while visiting +Shiripuno Lodge deep in the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve.

Over the time we are finding and learning more about this unique wilderness; we excite to find out the Red Brocket is the largest of all brocket deer, and also has the greatest range. Named for its foxy red coat, this stout-bodied deer with slender limbs has white fur on the inside of the legs, throat, lips, inner part of the ear and the lower part of the tail. Young red brockets have whitish spots on their coat. Like the majority of deer species, male red brockets have antlers, but they are generally only short, dagger-like spikes. These antlers can be shed at any time of the year, and may be kept for over one year. Fourteen subspecies of the red brocket are currently recognised.
