ROYAL MAIL DESCRIPTION
- Hedgehogs like to hibernate in piles of dead leaves and vegetation, though this can make them vulnerable to garden bonfires.
- Grass snakes are cold-blooded and rely on sunlight for warmth. When the days grow too short, they crawl into vegetation or cracks in banks to hibernate.
- Dormouse are proverbially sleepy, dormice can spend more than half the year in hibernation, within carefully woven woodland nests.
- The brown long-eared bat needs a steady supply of insects, so when this food source disappears, they hibernate.
