How Do You Know a Hibernating Hamster Is Dead?

Answer

Its body temperature had dropped, its rigid and stiff looking. Very slightly the whiskers on the hamster will move. The hamster will still have to breathe in its hibernation state. This happens because the hamster goes through a winter numbness. Hamsters like temperatures around 65 F - 72 F (18-22 C).
