The male species :-) evolved from stone age hunters practicing persistence hunting in midday in hot Africa. Working as a team, shouting, the men would flush a large animal. The animal would easily run away, a distance and stop. The men would catch up and flush the animal again, persisting until the animal, unable to lose heat except by panting, developed heat exhaustion and stopped trying to escape. The men did not overheat because they, unlike every other animal on earth, lacked body hair and sweated on their whole body surface. Persistence hunting is the reason human beings lack body hair and sweat.
