Bullet into wood

Hello,

This is not really homework, but is in the context of my course.

We always say that a bullet embeded into a wood does not conserve energy. We say heat is created. But, I was wondering: is the deformation of the wood considered heat released or is it some other kind of energy?

Is there any other kind of energy loss? What type?
