well in hot countries animals have a higher surface area:volume ratio (think of elephants who have lots of skin (wrinkles) because they need to lose heat to keep from overheating)

whereas in cold places animals have a lower surface area:volume ratio because they need to conserve their body heat in order to keep a constant of 37 degrees temperature

also think about ear size...animals in cold countries have smaller ears (polar bears-to lose least heat) and animals in hot countries have bis ears (elephants to lose maximum amount of heat)
