A Frog with… Antifreeze

Jambo! Mr. Nature here; and today our safari takes us to Alaska… in search of frogs!

What? Frogs in Alaska? Isn’t it too cold for them?

Not for the wood frog, it isn’t. These handsome brown frogs, with their black masks like raccoons, are able to live in these chilly climes because their bodies produce a kind of natural antifreeze. They go into suspended animation and wake up again in the spring.

God’s stuff–wow!
