Homeostasis : In a woman of childbearing age check a pregnancy test. The human body radiates heat from our biological energy processes 24/7 and depending on the ambient temperature the body will either shunt blood flow inward or dilate flow in the periphery to keep the normal body temp our biochemical enzymes and processes function at best.

Yes: Just as it retains its bones and blood vessels the donor skin remains. Therefore the hand will retain the same fingerprints.
