Example of a simulation of an organism’s cooling curve and corresponding sensor measurements. a A simulation of a 100-g Atlantic sea raven’s body temperature (Hemitripterus americanus, °C, red line) measured by a sensor with a k s of 0.81 min−1 (black line) as it responds to a 10 °C decrease in the ambient temperature (°C, gray dashed line). b The error observed between the sensor temperature and the body temperature. The mean error (\(\bar{E}\)) during the cooling period is reported. In both plots, a double arrow specifies the cooling period
