At least, why don't all animals produce no more heat than the tiny amount that's a byproduct of walking or a bonobo climbing up a vine when the outside temperature is above 0°C? They won't freeze anyway.
After all, the amount of food controls the population size at whatever size makes each individual have just enough food, so shouldn't those with a lower energy demand be more likely to get enough food to rear more children? Shouldn't mutations that make a warm blooded animal able to thrive with a lower core temperature and produce less heat be selected for because there's more likely to get enough food to rear more children?
Also, shouldn't cheetahs evolve to produce extremely little heat in the day during rest even on not very hot days so they will be less hot and can chase their prey for longer? Have they already evolved that way?
If a species did evolve to produce less heat, would that also evolve to walk slower because it takes a lower speed to minimize the energy burnt per distance because they're producing less heat? I know there there will be a nonzero speed that minimizes the absolute minimum possible energy burnt per distance possible to evolve for that speed and a lower speed will actually increase the energy burnt per distance because the animal is walking for a longer time but the rate of energy burnt per time varies less rapidly with speed at such low speeds because of the energy burnt to fight against gravity.
