Are amphibians cold blooded or warm blooded?


2 Answers

Scientists call amphibians "ectotherms", since they cannot generate their own body heat the way mammals and birds do. Instead, they get heat from basking in the sun. Cold-blooded is a poor term since it suggests these animals are always cold, which is not correct.
