Turtles: Hibernation

Hibernation is the state of dormancy coinciding with the cold of winter.

Brumation is a term used by some to specify hibernation in reptiles as separate from that in mammals.

Estivation is a biological method used to avoid harsh environments during summer months. It is thought to be a method to conserve water.
