In preparation for hibernation, bears develop a
>voracious appetite and eat high-fat foods such as the skin of salmon. What is the
word that describes the state that they are in with this appetite?
Super-something? Hyper-fasia-something? Do humans develop similar traits
I personally have never heard of any special term. We naturalists just say
they eat more. Since humans apparently have no history of hibernation in our
evolution, we would not have that motivation. I have no expertise to comment
on other aspects of human appetite.
