Hot andCold Animals

By Katie Mcilroy

indian elephants
Indian Elephants
  • Indian Elephants live in dry grasslands, in India and Asia, therefore they need to keep themselves cool.
  • Indian Elephants flap their large ears to cool their blood for circulation.
  • “Using thermal cameras, biologists have discovered that the creatures bodies are covered in ‘hot spots’ that can help them lose heat.”

Fun Fact: Elephants also enjoy spraying themselves with water or mud to stay cool.

qatari camels
Qatari Camels
  • Qatari Camels live in the desert and in hot, dry terrains.
  • Because the desert in Qatar is so hot, camels need to keep cool in the day.
  • Since a camel’s fat is stored in the hump, their body is not insulated and they are able to keep themselves cool in a desert.

Fun Fact: Contrary to a popular myth, camels do not actually store water in their humps, but fat.

alaskan polar bears
Alaskan Polar Bears
  • Alaskan Polar Bears generally live in snowy areas, along river banks and near water. Polar bears have developed special features for keeping warm in their icy terrain.
  • These features include; water repellent guard hairs, dense under fur, and black skin for absorbing warmth.

Fun Fact: Alaskan Polar Bears usually live alone, except when mating or rearing cubs.

leopard seals
Leopard Seals
  • Leopard Seals live in cold waters around Antarctica, so they have to keep warm to survive.
  • Leopard Seals can keep warm because they have a thick layer of blubber under their skins.

Fun Fact: Leopard Seals sometimes play with penguins they do not intend to eat.
