True or False: When animals hibernate in the winter, their body temperature rises.
Correct answer: False. When in hibernation, animals have low body temperatures and slow breathing, heart and metabolic rates.
Correct answer: C. Right Whales chow down on zooplankton or tiny animals that look like shrimp. And they eat a lot of it – up to 1,100 kilograms in one day! They get that much grub in by opening up their mouths wide and swimming through the water, catching their prey as they go. With that much food, it’s no wonder that they’re really large animals – weighing in at 63,500 kilograms and as long as 16 metres.
