During autumn, bears enter a state of hyperphagia where they eat excessively to fatten up for hibernation. After hyperphagia, the bear's metabolic processes change in preparation for hibernation. They become increasingly lethargic, resting for more than 22 hours a day until they eventually move to their den where they will spend the winter months.
