Ectotherm

An ectotherm is a cold blooded animal, an animal that uses their environment to help regulate their internal temperatures. Animals can express both ectothermic and endothermic properties. For example, turtles are ectothermic, but during the time in the sea, their body temperature is higher than the water around them. This shows that animals can express both features.
