 Summary of Reptile Biology and Physiology
However, reptiles are not “cold-blooded.” On occasion, they are quite the contrary and can even be “hot-blooded.” This gradation results in reptiles being “poikilothermic.” Poikilotherms have a body temperature that is variable with environmental conditions.
Reptiles in captivity often are maintained at suboptimal temperatures, which results in a compromised immune system.
A reptile that is kept at its preferred optimum temperature (with all other environmental conditions being ideal) and receives proper nutrition is often a healthy reptile.
