14 Hibernating Animals Who Haven’t Seen You For Awhile

Spring is here, and these animals are just now waking from their winter slumber. They’re so happy to see you, and so is GEICO! Say hello to your friends. It’ll make you happier than a hedgehog taking a bubble bath.

1. This frog

This frog has been M.I.A. all winter, but he wants to let you know that not only did he miss you terribly, he’s so happy to see your face. That makes up for it, right?


2. This hedgehog

This hedgehog went through an arduous journey to come see you, because he likes you that much, alright? Melting snow is no obstacle between you and him.

3. These baby bats

These little guys were snug as a bug in a rug for the winter. They’re sorry they never called but are ready to make up for lost time! Won’t you join them?

4. This bear

This bear was cooped up in a den all winter and is so excited to be out and about.

“Hello there, Mary! It looks like you’ve lost some weight!”

5. This chipmunk

Little did you know, this chipmunk was going nuts missing you. Now she has a chance to share her new peanut brittle recipe. (She’s super into DIY now.)


6. This baby skunk

D’awww, this little skunk was just resting his tiny eyes while it was blustery outside. She’ll be with you in a moment, I promise. She loves the spring.

7. This groundhog

This groundhog had a very busy February predicting the weather, but he’s mostly glad he gets to see you. You are all the sunshine he needs in his life.

8. This snail

Winter was rough for this snail, but she still wanted to see your pretty face. Treat her to a spa day. You both deserve it.

9. This raccoon

This little scoundrel decided to give you a surprise visit after an ice-cold winter!

“Shall we get some snacks? Raid a couple of picnic baskets? My treat.”

10. This gecko

To be honest, this gecko wasn’t hibernating. He was too busy helping people save hundreds on car insurance. But he’s ready to hang out now!


11. This bumblebee

The queen bee has been waiting all winter for you. Bee-lieve it.

“What’s buzzing in town? Any new gossip around the hive?”


12. This dwarf lemur

This lemur needs a little help waking up after his 3 month hibernation. Won’t you give him a little pet to jump start his day? He loves cuddles.

13. This marmot

This marmot just popped out of his den to visit you.

“How’s the weather up here?”

14. This turtle

This turtle is a patient little guy, and now he finally gets to see you. It’s your day, so make it count.

And if you are more of a night person, talk to these antelopes.

They don’t hibernate because of their night vision goggles.
