Sweat



Hi everyone

sorry - this isn't about dinosaurs, except that it's about 5-tonne
endothermic homeotherms without an insulating covering...

Why don't elephants sweat or pant? All the other large savannah mammals
that I can think of do one or the other. Could there be some connection
with the recent theory that elephants evolved from fully aquatic ancestors?

Best wishes to all
Chris
