Hibernation vs Migration
Name: Jeff Kolt
Why do some animals hibernate and others migrate?
It all boils down to where the animal can easily migrate or not. Big animals
would use too much energy to move great distances. Birds are easy. The habitat
also would be a factor. Caribou migrate over vast plains devoid of heavy brush,
makes it easy.
