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.


Two bats hibernating


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


One doesn´t have to go far for an example - surely you must have seen a similar picture at your home more often during winter / Photo: Martina Advaney
