Behavioral Adaptation Hibernation

Dakota Morrow

I chose hibernation. The reason I chose hibernation is because bears, ground squirrels, woodchucks, and several other kinds of animals hibernate. Hibernation is a state of inactivity where the body slows down. Hibernation happens in cold environment. It lowers the metabolism and slows down the breathing. Animals that hibernate conserve energy and copes with food shortages.


I chose competition. The reason I chose competition is because I like that animals fight for to the death for their resources. Competition results from niche overlap. Some animals will fight to death for their resources. Some plants will release toxins into the soil that prevent other form growing nearby.
