    Abstract – Infrared thermography has been used in the biology of different animals species, both in wildlife
    and in zoological garden. The present study aims at verifying whether thermography can be useful and has
    practical application in large wild felines kept in captivity. On four pregnant females of leopard, lion, tiger
    and puma, thermography was performed on eyes, nose, side and breast areas. The eyes represent the area
    with the highest temperature, whereas other areas show similar thermal trends, but with lower temperatures,
    probably because of the hair’s presence or of the frequency with which animal was moistened with tongue
    and wet. Thermography was not affected by the environment temperature.
