Hello-My mom and i are working on this question for science fair, and it has not
been easy to research! I was interested in the question because of Ann Bancroft
crossing the south pole, and if she'd be warmer if she was fatter or more
muscled. I know fat helps keep certain animals warm. Thank you very much for
your help and looking at this question!
