Napping Bears and Strong Bones

When bears hibernate they stay in their dens for a long time, if humans were to lay in one spot for five months we would lose a third of our bone mass. While our bones get weaker bears get stronger! They make a substance that keeps their bones healthy and promotes the growth of new cells.
