Question:
What animals hybernate in the summer I need five that does thank you


Replies:
Hibernation is specifically a response to cold, so technically NO animals hibernate in summer. Some amphibians go into a similar dormant state during hot, dry times, called aestivation. Diapause is a dormant stage of many insects that is not related to environmental conditions, but is part of the development cycle.
