Mammals use specialized connective tissue, called adipose tissue, as cushion, to store energy and to prevent excessive loss of body heat. Technically, adipose tissue is highly organized and consists of 14-sided hexagons. This optimizes the storage capacity of individual fat cells, while reducing material costs and intercellular gaps to the minimum.
