Human (Homo sapiens)

Order: Primates, Family: Hominidae

Note: Although the people conducting this experiment are regularly encountered in the images generated while provisioning the piles and testing the cameras, these “test” images are not included in the set for analysis.  On a few rare occasions a person not associated with the experiment happened to trigger a camera.  These images are included.

Appearance/Behavior: This large (1.0 – 2.5 m), bipedal (hence upright), clothed mammal is readily identified from the images.

Relative Frequency of Visitation in Study: Very rarely encountered.

Seasonal Activity: Potentially year-round.

Daily Activity:  Typically diurnal.

Similar Species:  No other animals that visit the piles resemble humans.
