Do you understand what hibernation is?

Without googling it, BE HONEST, did you think it was when the animals have a massive meal and then sleep for six months?

Well mates, it’s not. They’re still awake!

For those who voted yes, are you shaken to your core?

Imagine if we could just eat takeaway pizzas for six weeks to bulk up and then sleep it off over a couple of months. Dream life.

Would absolutely love to sleep from October to March, don’t care for hibernation though.

Do bears shit in the…

Would hibernate from April-September if I could.

That’s debatable.

In hibernation, hedgehogs become immobile, their bodies cool and their normal physiological activities are slowed down e.g. their heart rate decreases considerably from approximately 190 per minute to a faint 20 per minute, the body temperature, which is normally 35°C drops to 10°C or less and respiration almost stops ( they will breath about once every few minutes).

Most hedgehogs seem to wake up fairly frequently during their hibernation but rarely leave their nests.
