here's an odd one.

Alligators renew freaky behavior of freezing themselves in NC swamp with noses out

Quote:
Experts say the adaptation disproves the long standing belief that alligators are prevented from migrating north due to cold temperatures. The park is along the Shallotte River, about 200 miles east of Charlotte.

Howard told the Charlotte Observer the alligators seem to sense when the water is at the freezing point, and they respond by poking their nose above the surface “at just the right moment.”

Once frozen, they enter “a state of brumation, like hibernating,” until the water thaws, he told the Charlotte Observer last year.

The dozen alligators that froze last year in the park thawed out a few days later with no apparent injuries, he said.

Ice discs are getting a lot of attention in Maine right now. I went out to see rime ice this morning and found discs as a bonus.

ice circles are neat. Where I used to live, there was a section of a creek that had them when the weather was cold enough. First and only place I've seen them.



Bet this lady isn't a hippo collector.
