Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Investigates the underlying mechanism of hibernation and the concept of biological clocks. Squirrels still hibernate in the alien laboratory environment. The film shows clearly the arousal-increase in pulse rate, deeper breathing, shivering and contortions and the fully awakened normal temperature state.
