Cold Blooded Animals List

List of Cold Blooded AnimalsThe Difference Between Cold blooded animals is given here. Although the term is currently in disuse in the scientific context since that of ectothermic animals is used, this classification refers to those animals that regulate their body temperature depending on the ambient temperature.

Cold blooded animals generally inhabit very hot climates and are rarely seen in cold climates. However, there may be exceptions.

Types of thermoregulation in terms of Cold Blooded animals

  • Ectotherm. All cold-blooded animals can be considered as ectothermic animals since they regulate their body temperature in relation to the ambient temperature.
  • Poikilothermia. They are animals that regulate their body temperature, equating it to that of their immediate environment.
  • Bradimetabolism. They are animals that vary the speed of their metabolism to regulate their body temperature depending on the existing food and the ambient temperature.

As with warm-blooded animals, not all cold-blooded animals have all three characteristics of thermoregulation.
