Infrared Zoo Gallery - Baboon


Infrared Baboon

All mammals are warm-blooded, meaning that they generate their own heat. Mammal bodies also try to maintain a constant internal temperature. In these infrared images, you can see how warm the baboon is compared to her surroundings. The brightest areas are the eyes which are not covered by skin or fur. The bright areas on the baboon's body are places where her fur is thin, allowing her body heat to escape more easily.
