Whoa, what's going on with this turtle?
Some turtles spend the winter buried in the mud. When they wake up, they have a clump of mud on their shell!
When winter came, this frog didn’t burrow far enough into the mud. What do you think has happened to its body?
Sadly, the frog looks frozen solid. But this is no ordinary frog. This frog, called a Wood Frog, has a superpower…
Its blood contains a special chemical that stops the frog from freezing. Once it warms up, it will hop away!
What do you think has happened here?
These are alligator snouts, sticking above the ice!
It doesn’t usually get cold where alligators live. But as long as they keep their snouts above the water, they'll survive!
Can you guess what's happening here?
These are starlings. Many of them migrate south for winter, and when they do, they travel in huge groups!
These are called Snow Monkeys. They live in the snowy mountains of Japan. How do you think they stay warm?
Their fur definitely helps them. But they also love to go for a dip in the nearby hot springs!
