The great majority of land-based mammals have fur coats for
efficient temperature control and protection, irrespective of
habitat and extremes of heat and cold. It seems to me that it
has not been helpful for Man to be dependent on clothing etc
for temperature control. Am I wrong? How has this happened?
I look forward with interest to your comments!
