Daily Torpor, sometimes called temporary hibernation is a (usually short-term) state of decreased physiological activity in an animal, usually characterized by a reduced body temperature and rate of metabolism. Animals that go through torpor include birds and some mammals such as mice, and bats. During the active part of their day, animals that undergo daily torpor maintain normal body temperature and activity levels, but their temperature drops during a portion of the day (usually night) to conserve energy.
