Brumation UPSC NOTE


  • Brumation is a state of dormancy that reptiles and amphibians undergo during cold winter months. 

  • It is similar to hibernation in mammals.

Here are some key points about brumation:

  • Physiological changes: During brumation, reptiles and amphibians experience a slowing down of their metabolism, heart rate, and breathing. 

  • They may also stop eating and drinking for extended periods.

  • Triggers: Brumation is typically triggered by shorter days and cooler temperatures.

  • Location: Brumating animals will seek out safe and sheltered locations such as burrows, logs, or under rocks.

  • Benefits: Brumation helps reptiles and amphibians conserve energy during times when food and resources are scarce. 

  • It also allows them to avoid freezing in cold weather.

  • Differences from hibernation: Unlike true hibernators, brumating animals may become active occasionally during warm spells in winter. 

  • Additionally, their body temperature does not drop as significantly as that of hibernators.
