Nucleated RBCs -Reply



Mammals are the order veterbrate group that have non-nucleated red
blood cells; all the others, including birds, have nucleated red blood cells. 
Non-nucleated RBCs are not a prerequisite for endothermy, obviously,
but the adaptive significance of the mamalian-type RBC is still
undetermined.
