Best Answer

Blood is thinner in a warm climate because:

More water is needed to be carried - when perspiration occurs, water is lost.

More electrolytes are needed in heat - lost from perspiration.

Body activity is higher in the warmer temperatures so more oxygen has to be carried: thinner blood requires less work to move it to extremities.

In a cold climate conservation of heat occurs and vessels contract reducing volume blood vessels can carry.
