Warm-blooded: Quiz


Question 1: Another advantage of a ________ animal is its ability to maintain its constant body temperature even in freezing cold weather.

Question 2: Warm-bloodedness generally refers to three separate aspects of ________.

Question 3: The overall speed of an animal's metabolism increases by a factor of about 2 for every 10 C° rise in temperature (limited by the need to avoid ________).
Malignant hyperthermiaRhabdomyolysisHyperthermiaHypothermia

Question 4: In many endothermic animals a controlled state of hypothermia called ________, or torpor conserves energy by lowering the body temperature.
HibernationEstivationEmbryonic diapauseDormancy

Question 5: ________) body temperature drops during daily inactivity, such as at night for diurnal animals or during the day for nocturnal animals thus reducing the energy cost of maintaining body temperature.
Tail-less TenrecGolden moleAfrosoricidaTenrecidae

Question 6: Also, the energy required to maintain the homeothermic temperature comes from food - this results in ________ animals needing to eat much more food than poikilothermic animals.

Question 7: Large ________ exhibit inertial homeothermy (Gigantothermy) - their low ratio of surface area to volume minimises heat loss.

Question 8: Tachymetabolism is the kind of thermoregulation used by creatures that maintain a high resting ________ (Greek: tachys/tachus = "fast, swift", metabolēn = "throw beyond").
Amino acidLipid metabolismMetabolism3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA lyase

Question 9: In biology, a warm-blooded ________ species is one whose members maintain thermal homeostasis; that is, they keep their body temperature at a roughly constant level, regardless of the ambient temperature.

Question 10: Warm-blooded animals mainly control their ________ by regulating their metabolic rates (e.g.
FeverThermoregulationNormal human body temperatureHypothermia
