Thermal Image Gallery—Animals are ‘White Hot’ at the Tyler, Texas Zoo

Pulsar thermal imaging isn’t just for hunters, first responders and law enforcement. There are quite a few alternative uses for thermal imaging. Zoos, safari parks and other wildlife sanctuaries are increasingly using thermal cameras, binoculars and monoculars to monitor, observe, and study their animals. Particularly useful is thermal’s ability to function as a non-invasive health screening device for veterinarians. As a diagnostic tool, vets avoid capturing, handling and sedating an animal. Thermal can also detect a problem area before the animal starts displaying physical symptoms like a limp or favoring one leg.

Pulsar Pro Staff member and professional hog hunter—350 down this year alone—Brad Korando took a break from helping Texas farmers by visiting the Tyler, Texas Zoo with his family. Using his Helion XP38 thermal imaging monocular, Brad took these awesome pictures, which highlight the differences in warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals and animals that are wet, as well as detailing the clarity the Helion series of monoculars provide.
