1. An apparatus for monitoring at least one physiological parameter of an animal from one or more physiological characteristics present within an auditory canal of the animal, the animal having a head with an ear, the ear including the auditory canal, the apparatus comprising:

  • a conductor portion having a first end and a second end, the first end configured for positioning within the auditory canal of the animal, the conductor portion configured to conduct one or more physiological characteristics present within the auditory canal from the first end to the second end when the first end is positioned within the auditory canal;

    a processor portion coupled to the second end of the conductor portion, the processor portion configured to receive the one or more physiological characteristics from the second end of the conductor portion and to process the one or more received physiological characteristics to monitor at least one physiological parameter.
