Controlled Hypothermia

Although birds and mammals frequently function in the homeothermic mode and maintain relatively high stable temperatures, many mammals and some birds have the ability to relax their homeothermic responses and allow their body temperatures to fall, close to the level of low ambient temperatures. This phenomenon is called controlled hypothermia.
