What is Hibernation?1.Hibernation is the state of inactivity and metabolic depression in endotherms. 2.Characterized by low body temperature, slow breathing and heart rate, and low metabolic rate.3.Term has been redefined to include more animals.4.Hibernation and torpor use similar mechanisms1.Hibernation vs. Torpor5.What kinds of animals hibernateAndrews, M.T.
