Do Snakes Hibernate in the Winter?

Answer

Snakes do not technically hibernate, however cold-blooded animals such as snakes and turtles do not have the ability to keep warm during the winter months, so they search for and find shelter inside of holes or burrows, and they spend the winter either inactive or dormant, which is similar to hibernation, however this is called brumation. There are an estimated 2,900 species of snakes in the world, of which 375 are venomous. The size of snakes varies greatly by species, and some can reach lengths of 30 feet.
