Evening with the Experts – December 4th, Hibernation Isn’t Just For Bears

Hibernation Isn’t Just For Bears.
Hibernation is a common metabolic strategy found in all major groups of mammals, however, it is rare among primates.  Dr. Marina Blanco will discuss how and why Fat-tailed Dwarf lemurs hibernate.  Dr. Blanco has just returned from Madagascar and will discuss her research and the traits of these fascinating primates.  Join us – you won’t want to sleep through this event!
