Thermogram of a mouse and a snake. The different colours represent different temperatures. The lightest colours are the hottest temperatures, while the darker colours represent cooler temperatures. The cold blooded snake is much darker than the mouse. Thermography uses special cameras that can detect light in the far-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (900-14,000 nanometers or 0.9-14 µm) to create an image that represents an objects temperature.
