Giant Forest Hogs, Baboons, Agile Mangbeys, Crested Guinea Fowls, & Aardvarks (Camera Trap Footage From Bili Forest)

Another day, another batch of fascinating videos taken by camera-trap in the Bili Forest of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Rather than forest elephants this time, or leopards eating/destroying cameras, we’ve got a variety of different animals to show — from giant forest hogs, to agile mangbeys, to olive baboons, to crested guinea fowl, to aardvarks, to red river hogs. Some of these animals are endangered of course, it’s worth remembering. Enjoy.
