Hibernation

Hibernation

Hibernation is when an animal is in a state of inactivity where body temperature drops a lot. The animals' breathing slows down. Hibernation happens in cold environments. Hibernation lowers metabolism. When animals hibernate they are in a state of habituation.

Communication

Communication is any form of behavior that send a signal to any other organism. Gestures, facial expressions, gazes, or chemical signals are examples of communication through animals. For example ants use a chemical signal called pheromones, they use this to show paths to food, alarm calls, mate attraction, and to distinguish between colonies. Ants, bees, and termites all use pheromones.
