Best Answer

Most sharks are indeed cold blooded in that their internal body temperature is only slightly above that of the waters in which they live (they are said to be ectothermic). However, certains shark species (eg the Great White Shark) can and do keep their body temperatures well above their environment (they are said to be endothermic) and as such can be said to be warm blooded. These sharks are more active and can hunt in colder waters.
