Too Long; Didn't Read

Biomimicry is the emulation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. For maintaining temperature, for example, animals like camels can use their fur, while others, like the elephant, use vasodilation in different areas of the body (not only their ears) for this purpose. For example, a camel's fur has three main mechanisms for protecting their bodies from the heat: reducing heat transfer by radiation (light fur color reflects light energy), conduction (the air trapped in the fur acts as an insulation layer), and convection (camel's hair impedes air movement)
