cold nose. warm heart. the proof

Wanna see what a puppy looks like in infrared? Thanks to The Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech and their Infrared Zoo, we can observe that yes indeed, puppy's nose is a lot colder than the rest of him (but his eyes are warm!).

Horses look spiffy in infrared. A cat looks a bit spooky and leaves little warm pawprints. And the rabbit - well, that still looks cute. And apprently they're warm pretty much all over! Can you find a cold spot on the rabbit?

And in late breaking excitement - there's a new chapter of CAT TOWN! In which the Animal Hat Gang departs Alaska under a cloud - but are things back totally to normal? Of course not.
