Frogs of Winter

Some critters, when it turns cold, burrow beneath the soil to stay warm. But frogs don’t have claws, so they make do with scuffling under a pile of leaves. Leaf piles do help insulate you from the cold, but they don’t keep these frogs from freezing.

That’s OK, though, because some of these frogs -wood frog, Cope’s gray tree frog, eastern gray tree frog, spring peepers, and western chorus frog – can survive freezing. When things warm up, they thaw out and hop away.

Find out more about frogcicles and catch a video, over at Archimedes Notebook.

And if you’re getting cabin fever from being snowed in, why not go on an indoor field trip? More about that – and “book case wildlife” at Archimedes Notebook here.
