    When a bear hibernates, it

    • A.

      Sheds its winter coat

    • B.

      Spends the winter resting

    • C.

      Spends the summer storing body fat

    • D.

      Defends its cubs

    Correct Answer
    B. Spends the winter resting
    Explanation
    During hibernation, bears enter a state of deep sleep where their metabolic rate decreases significantly. This allows them to conserve energy and survive during the winter months when food is scarce. Instead of actively searching for food, bears spend the winter resting in their dens, conserving their energy until the warmer months when food becomes more readily available. During this time, they do not shed their winter coat, store body fat, or defend their cubs, as these activities are not directly related to their hibernation behavior.
