Infrared Lions in Africa (5 photos)

Our friends over at National Geographic never cease to amaze us. We thought we’d seen it all when it came to photos of lions in the wild, until we saw this. These new infrared images are totally amazing! “It is only once the sun has gone down beyond the horizon that the deadly lion truly comes to life, using scent and sound to stalk and kill its prey,” says Nat Geo. “But this night-time hunting routine has always been virtually impossible to capture on film – until now.” With the aid of new light-enhancing, heat-seeking technology, the Nat Geo crew uses a starlight camera to transform the pitch-black wilderness into an array of colors. This allows us to see lions and their prey in crystal-clear detail during their most active period. You can catch Night of the Lion on Monday, October 11th at 11:00am, on Nat Geo Wild.
