Hibernating bears

Hibernating bears

Hibernating bears don't eat or drink, and thus don't poop or pee, but they develop a fecal plug in their intestines that can grow to 7 to 15 inches long and 1 to 2.5 inches in diameter. They defecate when they emerge from hibernation. "Fecal plugs have a light odor that is not unpleasant."
