Each camera records in a three image burst. And it's up to you to figure out what the animals in each photo are. However, don't worry if you can't tell a warthog from an elephant, there's actually an incredibly intuitive process to narrow it down. You can specify the animals you see by color, pattern, what other sort of animal they look like, what their tail is like, and more. Each of those will pare down the choices until it becomes obvious.
