being warm looded and cold blooded is an important difference. First of all learn what does those terms mean.

PS: cold blooded does not mean the animal feels "cold". It is something to do with the air temperature.

First of all, warm-blooded and cold-blooded are vague terms, as a lizzard living in the Sahara can have a higher body temperature than a warm-blooded creature. more proper terms are homeothermic and poikilothermic.
Second, yes, there are other differences: the increase in cellular respiration made animals perfect their circulatory and respiratory system...

One of the differences between them is on the efficiency of basal metabolism or oxygen consumption which will affect the whole system directly or indirectly.

animals such as reptile,amphibians are cold blooded..but birds are warm blooded becase it's body temperature changed due to the surroundings

the other, cold-blooded animal can not survive at high temperature (more than 45'C) they will exhaust their own energy till end.(hm.. looks they do not have feedback sensory organ for this, or maybe they cannot keep its temp.-thats why they said as cold-blooded animal)

@helena
some bird can hibernate, such as hummingbird. the normal temperature of hummingbird is 37'C, but because they hibernate its temp. goes to 5'C.
(just explain this, do not make a sense to me, ok!?)

@Andrew
I ussualy use ectothemic and endothemic terms...sound good to me..
as an addition let's take one example..Human (warm blooded) spends about 1800 kcal/day (active or non-active) but reptiles spend about the same amount of energy per day but they can lower their energy consumption till 60 kcal/day during inactive period...

>>Hot-blooded animals are also known as (ahem) homeotherms. they generate their own heat internally to maintain a constant body temperature... endothermy means an organism that does such a thing.
>>Cold-blooded animals or poikilotherms have a changing body temperature in relation to their external conditions. ectothermy is the exact opposite of endothermy.. :P
