Summary: 
Looking down the barrel of a modern-day metal box (Elliott) trap. To set the trap, the entry door is flipped down and hooked under the ‘treadle’ step plate (the latter visible here directly in front of the animal). The bait (typically peanut butter and oats) and some bedding material (in this case coconut husk) is placed at the far end of the trap. The animal investigates the smell, walks into the entrance and once it treads on the step plate the hook tilts back, the entry door snaps shut behind the intruder, and it is efficiently trapped. The animal shown captured here is a mosaic-tailed rat (Melomys) of the eastern Australian forests. Source: Andrew Baker.
