Warm blooded

Mammals and birds are warm-blooded. Their body maintains a steady, high body temperature in order to function. Warm-blooded organisms allocate a lot of energy to their body temperature, unlike cold-blooded organisms who depend on external heat sources (in many cases, the sun). Many warm-blooded animals know some form of hibernation.
