Wildlife photography is not an easy job. Professionals sometimes put their lives in danger to get that perfect shot. There is no knowing how a wild animal might react to the sight of a camera. 
 

 

An upcoming wildlife show on BBC intends to capture animals and their behavior by hiding cameras inside dummy animals. But things went wrong during one of the shoots.
 
Technology, worth a lot of money was hidden inside a dummy female komodo as part of the upcoming show, Spy in the Wild II.
 
A seven foot long male sank its sharp claws into her back as part of the foreplay. But given that she was a dummy, she obviously, did not respond to the dragon’s randy moves. 
 
 
The male got frustrated and to take it all out he attacked a dummy pig, which also had cameras inside, to get footage from a different angle. 
 
“With its massive claws this dragon starts raking at the skin of the ‘female’, and there’s nothing you can do because you can't intervene. You just hope it will realise there’s something not right and it will stop,” The Sun quoted executive producer John Downer as saying. 
 
 
"But then this pig, with all our equipment in it, was in the wrong place at the wrong time and they just annihilated it. It was breeding season and they’d been riled up by fighting over this female and testosterone gets the worst of us. They were like dinosaurs, it was just unbelievable, it was totally smashed to pieces,” he further said. 
 
Clearly disguising cameras inside dummies is not a smash proof idea.
