Difference between Ectotherms and Endotherms
1. An ectotherm is those animals that do not have the ability to produce sufficient internal metabolic heat to maintain a constant body temperature. Endotherms are animals which can generate and maintain heat within its body independently of the environmental temperature.
2. All animals except mammals and birds are ectotherms and are often described as being cold-blooded anal-sits. Mammals and birds are endotherms and are often described as hornoiotherms or warm-blooded animals.
