How do you explain in a simple way of the word hibernate?
June 26, 2017 7:23AM
There are several animals that hibernate during the Winter to
await the coming of Spring and warmer temperatures. Hibernation is
often used during a time when food is scarce. Animals put on body
fat during the Autumn, which they live on when hibernating.
Hibernation is when an animal goes into a deep sleep, the heart and
breathing rate is slowed, and provided there is enough stored body
fat for the animal to live on, the animal should survive until the
return of their food source in Spring.
