Why Do Animals Give Birth in the Spring?

The spring season not only brings warmer weather. It also brings new animals to our world. This is due to a number of factors including:

Rising Temperatures

The warmer weather allows for these delicate babies to survive more easily.

End of Hibernation

After a long winter hibernation, some animals like chipmunks, seek out mates in early spring so their pups are born in warm weather.

Increased Daylight

More time in the sun means more time for animals to find food for their newborns.

Springtime may bring new life in some parts of the world, but areas like the tropics or subtropics don’t have defined breeding seasons. These climates maintain similar temperatures throughout the year, so new animals are born each day!
