The Black Bear’s “Winter Nap”
Snapshot Saturdays are a weekly feature on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource’s Facebook page. Give them a Like to keep up with recent DNR news and to view the weekly Snapshot Saturdays.
Do you wish you could indulge in a nice, long nap until spring weather is back again?
November is the month where Snapshot Wisconsin trail cameras see a sharp decline in the number of black bear images as the bears prepare to enter a state of deep sleep, known as torpor, for the winter.
Did you know you can view and classify photos collected from Snapshot Wisconsin cameras across the state at www.SnapshotWisconsin.org? It’s a fun activity for the whole family!
