To survive in the hot and often arid areas of the African continent, many animals must have developed specialised physiological and behavioural mechanisms. The latter are fairly well documented and play an essential role particularly in the survival of the very small animals. The medium-sized and larger animals are somewhat less susceptible to the adverse effect of heat as they have a relatively smaller body surface, although in the elephant this has probably caused a problem of the opposite order.
