Being warm-blooded or endothermic was the process of having one's blood be able to produce heat of its own accord. This trait was common among mammals and birds, but rare among reptiles, arachnids, insects, fish, and amphibians.

Humans were warm-blooded, so when the Voth (who were not) were observing them, they referred to them as "endotherms". (VOY: "Distant Origin")

Cats were warm-blooded, so Data described Spot as an "endothermic quadruped" in his poem, "Ode to Spot". (TNG: "Schisms", "A Fistful of Datas")
