 Hibernation

I live in VA and I met a guy who said he had an alligator. I asked him what he did with it during the winter and he said that they just go into hibernation. I was wondering if this was true or not.

Yes it is true. They go in a dormant type state but if you keep it 88 to 92 degrees it will stay active all winter as well. What part of Va do you live. I also live in Va, Lynchburg area....
