These colourful and intriguing images show animals and insects in a way that we’d never see them naturally. They are thermograms, made by measuring the infrared radiation the subject emits. Thus the pictures you see here show the distribution of heat around the bodies of animals and insects: hotspots on the horns of an ibis; the contrast between a cold-blooded snake and a warm-blooded mouse as the former strangles the latter; even the difference in temperature between an elephant and its recently-dropped poop.
