Detection data of carnivores and their prey species from camera traps in Fort Hood, Texas and Santa Cruz, California, USA. Non-carnivore and non-prey species (humans, domestic species, avian species, etc.) were excluded from this dataset. All detections of each species at a camera within 30 minutes have been combined to 1 detection (only first detection within that 30 minutes kept) to avoid pseudoreplication.
