Re: Warm Blooded vs. Cold Blooded



You seem to have missed some points about animal physiology. All vertebrates
with high aerobic scopes (which very probably included all but the most
archaic dinosaurs) must also have high resting metabolisms because of certain
constraints of the centralized respiro-circulatory system. Only insects with
dispersed respiratory trachea can have both high exercise and low resting
metabolisms.
