- can maintain relatively constant body temperature so enzymes etc can specialise to function at a certain temperature..
- can invade colder environments than ectotherm becau…se they can increase their body temperature. (MORE)
To answer this question, you have to first understand whatendothermy is. Endothermy is an animal's ability to control itsbody temperature.
