it's a matter of ratio between surface and volume.


since the loss of heat is done through the surface of your body, the more surface you have compared to your volume, the more heat you loose.
that is why bigger orgamnisms, wich have a smaller ration suface/volume, loose less heat.
And that is also why your fingers get colder in winter.
