As jburokas pointed out, decomposing vegetation can reach dangerous temperatures (even, in the case of grass clippings, temperatures which can cause burns). Animals that use decomposing vegetation to aid incubation, such as some megapodes (mound nesting birds), constantly remove and add substrate to keep the temperature stable.
