A fatty bear during the hyperphagia stage in autumn: Bears exhibit a seasonal change in body weight, with the highest weight in November. Because they hibernate during the winter, they store a large quantity of energy during the pre-hibernation period. Bears may have unique physiological mechanisms in order to accumulate body fat during the pre-hibernation period. See the article by Kamine et al. on page 5.
