Lion Caught on Infrared Camera

Clip: Season 34 Episode 14 | 2m 44s

In the dead of night, a big male lion appears near an Indian village to reclaim his kill from earlier in the day. Villagers rush to the scene, but instead of confronting this deadly predator, they celebrate his arrival. The black and white images were captured with an infrared camera that registers heat instead of visible light. The darker areas are warmer and brighter areas cooler.
