Cardassians, cold- or warmblooded?

My assumption has always been that they're meant to be cold-blooded due to the reptilian aspect of their ancestry.

Their liking for heat is emphasized several times during the DS9 run; and the last volume of the Terok Nor trilogy (not strictly canon, o.k., but official) has Cardassian staff falling into an impaired lethargy when the environmental controls are compromised. This fits with reptile biology and would make sense.
