Science of…Hibernation

January 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Hibernation, brumation, aestivation, or denning.  Animals may sleep for long periods of time, short periods of time, or they may just have light spells of slowed activity.  Either way you spin it, animals are trying to save energy during times of extreme cold, heat, or poor environmental conditions.  In this episode of the Science of, we will be exploring what all of these ways of surviving entail along with the process the animal’s body goes through in order to get to this state of energy saving.  We will also look at what animals in Nebraska hibernate- you might be surprised it is actually very few!  Join us and see!
