Was ist typisch für den Winter?

Es gibt einige Dinge, die den Winter zu einer einzigartigen Jahreszeit machen. Dazu zählen in europäischen Breiten vor allem die kälteren Temperaturen (oft unter dem Gefrierpunkt!), der Schnee und das Eis, the kürzeren Tage und längeren Nächte, the Skifahren und Snowboarden auf den Pisten, sowie die Weihnachtszeit and the Jahreswechsel.

Was ist Winterschlaf und welche Tiere halten ihn?

Viele Tiere in Deutschland nutzen den Winterschlaf als Überlebensstrategie, um Perioden mit Nahrungsknappheit zu überbrücken. Sie verbrennen in dieser Zeit dann Fettreserven, die sie im Laufe des Jahres angesammelt haben – und erreichen einen tiefen, anhaltenden Schlafzustand.

Here are some Tiere, die in Deutschland typischerweise Winterschlaf halten:

  • Igel
  • Bats
  • Haselmaus
  • Murmeltiere
  • Hamster
  • Siebenschläfer
