The Best Way To Deal with Winter – Masters Of Hibernation

Doesn't winter weather call for sleeping through it? Some got the message and set up their biorhythms the right way, and some didn´t. Today you can get inspired by the lucky ones – the species that go into the state of hibernation.

European Hedgehog (Erinaceous Europaeus) preparing for hibernation


Turtles hibernate as well


Not quite yet – Brown bear (Ursus arctos) awaiting spring


Knock, knock. Can I stay over winter? – Common toad choosing its spot for hibernation


Just out of hibernation – Adder snake (Vipera berus)


In the Hornet family (Vespa crabro) only the new queen hibernates


Some snails hibernate – To stay moist they seal the opening of their shells with an epiphragm
