- In The Field
Hibernation is essentially a long period of deep sleep, often called a 'torpor' that allows animals like bats to survive the winter. The body temperature lowers and the metabolic rate slows right down meaning that most of their energy is conserved and they can live on their fat store rather than foraging for food, when there is little about.
Bats need hibernation roosts that are relatively cool and remain at a consistent temperature, often choosing hollow trees, caves, or artifical roosts such as this one.
