Examples of Animals That Estivate?

Answer

Estivation is when an animal will go to into a state like hibernation to avoid high temperatures in the weather. Often times the animal will do this during the summer months and their metabolism will drop significantly. Examples of animals that estivate are land crabs, lady beetles, African lungfish, mosquitoes, earthworms, toads and hedgehogs. Estivation is similar to hibernation in that an animal will sleep through a long period of time, but instead of the winter, estivation occurs in the summer.
