Default Kroot physiology

Hiya. I've been trawling through the codex and various online sources trying to find reference to the Kroot physiology in an effort to ascertain whether or not they are cold-blooded. They're reptilian and hail from a forest/jungle world, so it seemed to me that they would likely be cold-blooded, but I've found no reference to support this. Am I correct then in assuming they are warm-bodied after all, or has anyone seen reference to the contrary?

The only place I can think of too look for that info would be in xenology. It was a book where a guy autopsied most of the races in 40k had a good bit of random info about the races in it.

There was also a White Dwarf article about Kroot. I think it's issue 265 UK (264 US). It covered pretty much everything about them.

Thanks, fellas. I don't have access to the sources you mentioned though unfortunately. I've looked through all freely available material I can think of and I'm assuming they're warm-bodied as I've thus far found no evidence to the contrary, but I just wanted to hear from the knowledgeable folk of Tau Online as to whether they knew differently.

Pretty sure their warm-blooded as their ancestors are birds, not reptiles.

But birds are the ancestors of reptiles... :

I believe that they are warmblooded, because if they were cold blooded, then the Tau could never use them on ice worlds, because they wear few clothes...

There's an article on this website explaining a theory about how kroot evolved from lizardmen - if that's true it suggests they are cold blooded.

Fixed that for you. At least here on Earth, who knows how it worked on the Kroot homeworld.
