Amazing photos infrared images elephants at night

This is pretty cool.

Infrared (IR) photography is a valuable tool in examining the thermoregulation systems of animals.

In these images, taken at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay each color represents a different temperature, so we can see what parts or areas of animals and their environments are cooler, or warmer, than others.

That helps us to learn about how animals regulate their body temperature. Check out the pictures here:

San Diego Zoo Safari Park Pictures

I've got some pictures to share with you today of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, or formerly known as the San Diego Wild Animal Park as it was called during the time of my visit (2006). The other major change was that the zoo formerly operated a monorail line, the Wgasa Bush Line, which ran through the Wild Animal Park. The Monorail line has been retired, partially due to high maintenance costs, and in March 2007 the new Journey into Africa attraction opened. 
More pictures coming soon!
