Dear Jennifer,
	The part of your questions not yet answered is "what happens to the
heat [mis-typed as 'hear']?"  The answer for non-endothermic animals is that
is raises body temperature, just as in endotherms, but there is no regulatory
mechanism.  In the cases of all organisms, the heat eventually is transported
into the environment.
