Sleepy Summers

I can never remember this word when I want to use it. I first heard it as a child and thought it was wonderful that there are animals that hole up during the warm months and only emerge when things cool down. A wise and enlightened attitude it always seemed to me.

├Žstivate, v.

To spend the summer. esp. in Zool. To pass the summer in a state of torpor or suspended animation. (Cf. hibernate.)
