Abstract

Infrared cameras were used at the Kuching Wetlands National Park, Sarawak, East Malaysia, to examine their usefulness in studying the Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), between June 2013 and April 2014. Other objectives of this study were to determine activity patterns and habitat use. Three locations were selected along riverbanks at Pulau Liak and Sungei Sibu. A total of 43 photographs of the target species were obtained, and an additional 12 images of three species of mammals that are potentially prey species, comprising Macaca fascicularis (8), Aonyx cinerea (3) and unidentified squirrel (1). C.porosus was mostly rcorded near rivebanks during late nights, but photographs were also taken during the day. Based on these analyses, high tides was preferred time for utilisation of terrestrial habitats, perhaps because of ease of access to high ground. Such habitats also provide food in the form of mammalian prey.
