Hibernation

In this movie, you’ll learn how some animals survive the cold winter by hibernating and going into a deep sleep. They prepare to hibernate by eating a lot and fattening up. When the temperature goes down and the days get shorter, they go into a deep sleep and live off their fat. Then, when it gets warmer in the spring, they wake up. You'll learn about different animals that hibernate through the winter, including ground squirrels and bats. But, do bears really hibernate? Watch the movie to find out!
