Hi,

This means simply spend the winter in a torpid (without feeling or movement) state as of animals mentioned in the sentence.

Hi Khan,

'Take a nap' means 'have a short sleep'. This is sometimes called a 'cat nap' as cats often take a short sleep.

To sleep is to do so for a limited amount of time according to your individual requirements. (Humans.)

To hibernate is to go into seclusion and sleep/rest for an indeterminate amount of time, sometimes days, weeks, or even longer. (Animals.)
