Do Bats Hibernate for the Winter?

Answer

There are some species of bats especially the high latitude ones that do hibernate during winter while the other species do not hibernate. They enter into 'slumber' that can last up to six months. This is possible because they drop their heart beat rate, body temperature and metabolism rate to very low levels.
