Why does a hibernating animals temperature drop?
I would assume as a way of conserving energy. Kind of like a natural suspended animation.
Some animals hibernate in the winter because it is cold and there is shortage of food.
Animals hibernate durring the winter because of shortage of food. Because in the winter, there is no food for them to find, and some would not be able to stay warm. So they hibernate/ sleep through winter. Hibernation is a process in which an animal's body temperature is lowered and its heartbe…at slowed, in order to conserve energy during times of scarcity and stress. Each type of animal hibernates in a different way. Squirrels can wake up every four days to grab a bite to eat and take a trip to the bathroom, while black bears can stay dormant, or inactive, for up to seven months with no food, water, or visits to the bathroom. They have evolved hibernation as a response to environmental conditions, like severe winters. ( Full Answer )
All bears EXCEPT Spectacled, Panda, and Sun Bears hibernate. AlsoPolar Bears do not really hibernate. They get up during the winterto eat. Chipmunks, ground squirrels, echidnas, possums, hedgehogs,hamsters, skunks, bats, prairie dogs, marmots, badgers, and somelemurs.
Animals that Hiberante Below are just a few Examples: . Hamsters . Prairie Dogs . Dormouse . Fat tailed lemurs . Ground squirrels . Earthworms . Ladybird . Mosquitoes . bats . snakes . lizards . hedhogs . butterflies . polar bears
They store food for the winter and then they sleep all winter in a cave or something. Eating and sleeping.
Hibernating slows down their bodily functions such as digestion and heartbeat, as well as their metabolism, or how they turn food and fats into energy, so that they can go a whole season without eating. In order to prepare for this, the animal usually will gorge itself to build up a store of fats an…d eat fibrous things such as grass, tree bark, hair, etc., to for a plug in their bowels and prevent them from messing themselves during hibernation. Some animals that hibernate include bears, bats, and snakes. ( Full Answer )
Hedgehogs, squirrels, badgers, foxes and several others. Plus, many birds such as swallows migrate to warmer climates such as Africa.
Animals in North America that hibernate include types of bears andsnakes, as well as bats. Bees also hibernate all winter, especiallythe queens.
the animal that hibernates is a bear, and they do that to conserve food and water, to make our world better place, eat pie, chips, and cheese cake.
Animals usually hibernate because it gets too hard to find food. Hibernation/sleeping means they'll be using less energy, so theycan use that to survive until there's food available again.
\nHibernation is when an animal enters a deep coma-like sleep in which they use very little energy, live off the fat they have stored and pass the winter months.
Squirrels, hedgehogs, frogs, moles, mice, toads & bats I'm sure there is more ! Shazanater x.
lots of animals hibernate during the winter . The animals are woodchucks,hedgehogs,ground squirrels,hamsters, and bats.
Animals in the rainforest should not be hibernating because animals that need to hibernate do because of the cooler weather and shortage of food in the winter time. They sleep in order to save their energy to last until spring.
Depending on the type of animal i.e. if the animal is cold or warm blooded; they respond differently. Cold blooded animals have to stay in the sunlight in order to ensure that they get enough heat, while warm blooded animal may take the same action as cold blooded one or regulate their own body temp…erature to warm themselves up.

Bats, frogs,snakes, ladybugs,amphibians, and turtles. When they hibernate their heart rate, blood pressure, and kidney function go down. They hibernate so they don't freeze to death. Rabbits hibernate also.
giraffes mice rats dead birds eagles and you duhhh u could of answer it on your on
In places where the winter is cold, some mammal species have developed this defense against it. Their metabolism slows down while they wait out a period where their usual food will not be available. They do not eat much, and only from their stored food. They do not actually sleep throughout the whol…e winter. Periods last from days to weeks. It is a period of limited activity. There is much more to this answer depending on factors like the particular species and the location on the Earth. ( Full Answer )
Summer and Spring are filled with food for both predators and herbivores. Autumm is when plants begin to wilt ( and crops ), so this is when animals try to find, and eat the scraps that are left. Winter however is icy cold, with all plants dead. So prededers and some herbivores hibernate (sleep unti…l spring ) to make time go by. :) from olivia the animal person a message from the hsa help. save. animals. ( Full Answer )
Some well known mammals that hibernate are bears, bats and ground squirrels. Reptiles such as snakes, turtles and frogs also hibernate, but this differs from traditional hibernation because the metabolic processes are different. It is called brumation, and just means the reptile is less active, or… slow. They still need to take in water and are not fully "sleeping". Hibernating slows down their bodily functions such as digestion and heartbeat, as well as their metabolism, or how they turn food and fats into energy so that they can go a whole season without eating. In order to prepare for this, the animal usually will gorge itself to build up a store of fats and eat fibrous things such as grass, tree bark, hair, etc., to for a plug in their bowels and prevent them from messing themselves during hibernation.

Warm Blooded Animals:. Hibernating animals build up fat reserves before the big 'sleep'. The fat is slowly consumed to keep up a regular metabolic state. Their metabolism will slow down, along with their heart rate and breathing. This slow consumption of fat keeps them from starving (they don't nee…d a lot of energy if they aren't moving around, so less fat can be consumed and stored longer). During hibernation the animal's temperature will lower to the temperature around them. Say it's 0 C (32 F) outside, the animal's body temp will be the same ( basically they 'turn' into a cold-blooded animal). If it gets too cold more fat will be consumed to produce more heat. Some animals will wake and eat then walk around within their den to produce more heat ( but this is not 'true' hibernation. True hibernation means the animal does not wake up until environmental conditions are 'perfect').. Cold Blooded Animals:. Cold blooded animals also build fat stores but unlike warm blooded animals they go into a 'dead' state. They completely stop breathing and consume much less fat than warm blooded animals. They are able to freeze their bodies and warm up again only when the outside temperature warms up. They are completely dependant on their surroundings unlike warm blooded animals who can warm their bodies up by consuming more fat. (Cold blooded animals can not hold as mach fat as a warm blooded animals can.) ( Full Answer )
Once the temperature goes below fifty degrees wasps start to havean issue with flying. As it dips to lower points below fiftydegrees the colony begins to dye off leaving the queen to find aplace to hibernate for the winter.
many including bears,chipmunks.even a kind of frog or toad in europe.This process is called hybernation
loads of animals hibernate like ...

Some do, but there are a lot of different kinds of animals inEurope, and not all of them have a hibernation cycle.
They dont eat when they hibernate, they spend a long time before the winter eating as much food as possible so when they sleep they have a lot of fat so they do not die. hope this helpde :) Jasmine
Well, Animals hibernate usually during the winter. for example bears hibernate during the winter because it is to cold in the winter for them to stay outside.
a polar bear hibernates in the summer unlike its cousins the black bear the forages for food during summer ready to hibernate in the winter :)
Well I know why they migrate: because they want t go to a place that's warmer Not all animals either migrate or hibernate. Some just stay where they are and carry on with what they're doing. Migration is when animals move from one place to another, while hibernation is a dormant state. They are… both ways of dealing with changing situations, either go somewhere where the conditions are better or go to sleep until conditions improve. Animals that migrate (birds, deer) are usually much more motile than hibernating animals (hedgehogs, badgers) ( Full Answer )
when it gets cold out (winter season). They may also respond todecreasing amounts of sunlight as the days shorten.
That would depend upon the climate of the particular desert. Inmost hot deserts, mammals usually do not hibernate but cold bloodedanimals, such as snakes and lizards do. Some cold blooded animalsgo through a summer estivation (summer hibernation) period duringthe really hot and dry parts of the year…. In some cold deserts,mammals may hibernate during the coldest part of winter. ( Full Answer )
Birds such as Geese and Ducks migrate due to the cold tempuraturesin the Northern states, causing the lakes and rivers to freezeover, making it impossible to land on the water to reach their mainand almost only source of food, weeds and small fish. Birds such asRobins migrate because their main diet… consists of berries andnuts, and usually they are not available during the winter andtherefore must migrate to the South where the berries growyear-round. However, animals like bears hibernate since they don'thave the time or strength to travel such long lengths to reachwarmer climates, and therefore stock up on as much food as they canin their bellies before going into a long slumber in a protectedand supposedly warmer location like a cave or hole in the ground ( Full Answer )
so in the winter, they hibernate. when they are sleeping they don't have to suffer the cold and so they dont have to get food
When in hibernation, an animal would rest(sleep) in it's habitat until it is spring. Once in hibernation, the animal's heart rate slows down. That way, the animal can save more fat to be warm during the cold winters night.
they are keeping themselves warm from the food that they store. They are also burning calories, I think. You should probably check with A specialist.
They have a part in their brain which is like a natural clock that is wired in they wake up in spring. How did they know winters coming and to collect food, natural clocks.
Animals must store their food before thy hibernate because the need to keep body fat for the winter.
Let's say you're an animals that eat insects, and you're somewhere where winter means snow, ice and serious cold. Not many insects around then. To keep from starving one method is to simply move (=migrate) to where winter isn't as bad, and where there are still bugs to eat. If you can't move fast an…d far enough to find bugs, another option is to try to sleep(=hibernate) through it all. Sleeping means you won't use up as much energy, so if you're good and fat when you go to sleep in autumn, that can take you through until spring when there are new bugs to eat. ( Full Answer )
The meaning of hibernate is when a animal is awake during a season/seasons and then they hibernate (sleep for awhile). Like a bear will hibernate during winter and be awake most of the time in summer
A hibernating animal such as a bear for example will have to find enough food during the spring, summer and autumn to build up fat reserves in its body to survive the winter. Bears are also known to wake up during there hibernation period to find food. I hope this was helpful.
They actually survive on nothing. They eat so much that all the food they eat will be enough for the hibernating winter. Especially bears and squirrels. They also depend on their fat from the food as heat and warmth.
Migration Animals satisfy their full before migrating to other countries or islands. They make sure everyone is healthy before the flock flies off. Any bird, or insect who is not in a good condition will stay behind, be left behind, or faint while flying. Hibernation The same thing between migrat…ion and hibernation is that the animals both need to be full. Many animals give birth during hibernation. Some animals bring extra food into their dens just incase they get hungry. Animals such as bears will either dig a tunnel to a cosy, hair and leaf lined cave or find a appropriate stone cave on the side of a mountain. ( Full Answer )
I am pretty sure bears since they have more body they can last the longest. :)
some animals their body temperature does drop along with their breathing rate, during hibernation. In hedgehogs if their body temperature drops below a certain point (it is not known what temperature as its different in all hedgehogs) they will use some of their body fat to start shaking to warm up… then move to a warm location.

The animals including trees hibernate all they do is just eat, sleep, until the animals and trees wake up until spring.
Michigan does not have many animals that truly hibernate in thewinter months. The few animals that do hibernate are the groundsquirrels, some species of mice, woodchucks, and bats.
Hibernating animals are in a deep sleep and usually have slower than normal breathing, and lower body temperatures. If an animal is in a "true" hibernation state, he can be moved around, touched, and still not wake up.
Two basic ways is either by storing food (squirrels storing acorns,etc), or putting on body fat (bears eating heavily in Autumn tofeed on the body fat while sleeping over the Winter).
Firstly, an animal reacts to the weather, which tells it whetherwinter is coming or not and whether or not it should prepare forhibernation. If the signs foretell winter is on its way, theanimal, lets say a toad, goes to find somewhere which is warm,sheltered and possibly hidden (away from predators…). When it findsit, for eg. a log/stone pile or a compost heap, it settles down,and it falls into a very deep sleep- its heart rate plummets to thebare minimum to keep it alive, its brain activitiy slows downincredibly, and its breathing is very slow, shallow and light-barely alive. Through that time through winter, it stays in thisstate until it senses the weather wariming up, indicating springhas arrived, in whicch the toad will go offin search of a pond tomate. There are some very strange cases in animals that hibernate,one of which very much interested me. It is of a caterpillar, thatis in hibernation for most of the year, and it lives in the ArcticTundra. When it senses the very short spring is coming to an end,in which it had guzzled as much vegetation as it possibly could, itwould go find a place that's sheltered, for example under a stoneor similar, and it wouyld sitthere, and began hibernating- detailsdecribed above. Then the interesting thing happens. Thetemperatures get to absolutely freezing levels, down to -65 or moredegrees! So the caterpillar, all snug, practically dies under thatrock or wherever- it actually freezes solid! On a documentary byDavid Attenborough, time lapse photography showed this amazingphenomena occuring- it was amazing! Forgot what the brilliantcaterpillar was called though. ( Full Answer )
Hibernation is an inactive, sleep-like state for extended periods that some animals enter during extreme winters to remain alive without food for long periods. The body temperature of a hibernating animal is lower than normal. Also its heartbeat and breathing slows down considerably. In winters whe…n the environment is very cold and food is scarce, hibernation enables these animals to remain alive without food in three ways. First the body temperature of the animals is reduced below the normal temperature, reducing the expenditure in energy in keeping the body warm. Second, lack of physical activity also cuts down on energy requirements. Finally these animals have a large reservoir of fat stored in the body which is used up during the period of hibernation. Hibernation for some animals can last for several weeks stretching across the worst period of winter. For others the hibernation may consist of several stretches of a few days interrupted by in between periods of arousal when the body temperature is restored to normal.
