The dataset is comprised of game camera photos taken at known turtle basking structures in the Atchafalaya Basin's Little Alabama Bayou in south-central Louisiana. There was a spring camera deployment in April 2021 and a fall camera deployment in October 2021. Three game cameras were used in each deployment and photos were taken every two minutes for seven days for each camera. The photos in this release are those in which turtles, or other vertebrates, can be seen. Photos with no vertebrates were excluded from the release and do not provide any data.
