Endothermy was the ability of warm-blooded animals to control their body temperatures through internal means such as muscle shivering, fat burning, and panting. An endothermic creature was known as an endotherm.

In his "Ode to Spot," Data noted that Spot was an "endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature." (TNG: "Schisms")

The Voth used the term endotherm in relation to mammalian species, and considered them to not usually be very advanced. (VOY: "Distant Origin")
