Estivation is a state of animal dormancy, similar to hibernation, that is entered in response to high temperatures and arid conditions. Many air-breathing land snails commonly estivate during periods of heat. Animals that aestivate include North American desert tortoises, crocodiles, salamanders, African lung fish and dwarf lemurs.
