No, bears are estivators.  They don't hibernate, they just sleep for a
few months.  Their body temperature doesn't drop and their heartbeat and
breathing don't stop as happens with animals that actually hibernate.

If you're going to use an example of an animal that hibernates, use one
that really does hibernate.
