Abstract
Tissue temperature gradients were measured in the front leg, rear leg, back, and rump of the African guinea hog and were fitted to a parabolic model. The depth at which the estimated temperature became equal to the rectal temperature was constant regardless of ambient temperature (in the range -1.1 degrees C to 37.8 degrees C).
