  3. 3. Mammals are warmblooded.The temperature could be freezing cold or boiling hot, but mammals’ bodies are built to maintain just about the same temperature all the time.Warm blood lets the mammals be very active and live in a wide variety of places.
  4. 4. More about Mammals•Polar bears live in very cold areas.•Camels live in hot areas.•Moles live under the ground.•Bats live in caves and fly in the air.•Dolphins live in the oceans.•Fur and fat help protect mammals wholive in the cold.•Mammals sweat or pant to release extraheat if they live somewhere toasty.
