ENERGY AND ACTIVITY
'Warm-blooded' animals in winter
'Warm-blooded' animals do one of three things in winter:
- They remain active, feeding on what they can find and insulating themselves with fur, feathers or fat.
- They migrate to warmer regions where they can find food and continue active lives.
- They can store food and hibernate.
