Short Limbs Long Limbs

Allen's rule (the 1877 Joel Asaph Allen) says that endotherms (I had to look this up) from colder climates have shorter limbs than their equivalents from warmer climates.

Is that why Eskimos are so cute and short? (are they?)

And Jamaican people are super tall? (are they?)

Misuse of the question mark...?
