MeerkatsMeerkats are small animals in the mongoose family. Their high metabolisms cause them to glow brightly in the infrared, even through their insulating layers of fur.
Visible: Meerkats perch on a rock.
Infrared: The meerkats' surroundings also give off some infrared light, but the meerkats' high temperatures make them glow brightly.
