“Hibernation is (… ) a state of inactivity in animals.”*
Animals hibernate to save energy when food supplies are limited. They store fat in their bodies to produce energy while they ‘sleep’.
When do these animals hibernate? Where do they hide? Let’s learn about it:

Hibernates in tree holes for up to seven months of the year, usually in winter.
Western Diamondback Snake
