Level One. Hibernation.

Level One. Hibernation.

By Michelle Lloyd.

A big sleep or a rest of sorts,

was how the idea of hibernation was taught.

It was all about retreating, relaxing and restoring,

gaining energy, sleeping and perhaps some snoring!

Certain animals had to do it and so off they would go,

covering from the elements, the extreme warm, cold or snow.

Specially in the winter months hibernation can be a key tool,

in how animals demonstrate an important survival rule.

In colder months or when there is a lack of so much food,

it is necessary to think hard, keep cool and be shrewd.

Shrewd or being clever can save lives and keep animals happy,

sleeping, slowing and maintaining strength at times of difficulty.
