They'd have to be low level animals in order for that to
happen. They can cover up to decrease conductance so there's
no reason to gain their hair back. If you are talking about some
time period when they were still too unintelligent to be able
to do this, I'd assume you'd have to go back at least before fire.

And finally the initial reasoning is wrong. IF A, THEN B, doesn't
imply that, IF not-A, then not-B. We already went through
