Animals Besides Bears That Hibernate

Hibernation is an amazing physiological feat for animal survival. Without this ability, a lot of animals would freeze and die in the winter. While bears are the animals most known for hibernating the winter away, they aren't the only ones. The large Gila monster lizard hibernates from November to February in the Southwestern United States. Turtles also require hibernation once it starts to get cold since they can't produce their own body heat. And nearly all snakes will experience some form of hibernation in winter, though the length varies depending on location. Other hibernators include skunks, hedgehogs, bats, and hummingbirds.
