Share This Story!

Of all of nature’s processes, hibernation has to be one of the most mysterious. While some humans might think sleeping for months at a time sounds pretty do-able, the reality is, the biological processes that hibernating animals undergo are unlike anything we have ever experienced. Their hearts slow, their body temperatures lower, and their metabolisms screech to a halt. In fact, animal hibernation is probably the closest that anyone has ever come to being cryogenically frozen.

So if to you hibernation is nothing more than hunkering down on the couch with Netflix and some hot cocoa, you are missing out on some incredible facts. Take our quiz and see how much you know about the amazing world of hibernators!
