CBS News correspondent Seth Doane was granted access to some rare pictures of tigers in the wild. Taken by cameras hidden deep in the jungles of Thailand, the video shows the endangered animals as they've rarely been seen.
The footage was made available only to CBS News by the Wildlife Conservation Society.
"It's the first time that technology has gotten to the stage where we can take videos," Elizabeth Bennett said. Bennett is with the WCS, which runs New York City's Bronx Zoo. The laser-triggered camera traps capture video of the tigers "behaving naturally," she says. "Completely away from humans - there are no humans anywhere near them."
The cameras were set up along Thailand's border with Burma. The images all come from within a special protected zone roughly the size of Rhode Island.
Along with elephants and tigers, poachers also roam. Poaching has contributed to reducing the worldwide tiger population by 97 percent.
