The answer might be obvious, but I've wondered if stenotherms like a common house gecko, for instance, might produce sufficient respiratory heat to exhale warm air.

Clearly, respiratory heat and homeostatic heat of eurytherms are independent but is there a difference in the respiratory heat produced in cold-blooded and warm-blooded?

What if we scaled this lizard up, maybe to a dinosaur, then would the answer be any different? ( Ignoring the debate of dinosaur's cold-bloodedness and assuming it to be so)
