Arctic Ground Squirrel

Arctic Ground Squirrels have the most unusual hibernation among mammals. During winter hibernation their body temperature plummets to negative 3 degrees Celsius and then every two to three weeks they shiver to warm themselves back up to normal mammalian temperature (37 degrees Celsius).
