The hottest lava that comes out of a volcano is about 1200 degrees celsius. So without being able to go down there and measure how hot it is myself, the volcano is probably slightly hotter than that.
Most dormant volcanoes are still hot, yes. This is because the heat is stored in the rock for many years.
How many volcanoes have you seen/ been to?
do you think in the future all volcanos will be dorment?
If you could name a volcano what would I call it?
Are the volcanoes around the world, mostly active, dorment or extinct.
what are the signs of a volcano that is about to erupt?
have you ever needed to run away from lava?
