Their large skin surface area relative to their tiny bodies and high heat production from their activities adds to their risk.
When the body gets too warm, it perspires, leading to sweat evaporation which cools it down. Elevated relative humidity diminishes evaporation, thereby reducing the body's ability to shed heat and creating a feeling of being too warm. With body temperatures on the rise, inefficient heat shedding can lead to dehydration and its associated complications.
