Potato Creek State Park, Indiana, USA


Description:

One of the coolest animals (literally) on the planet, the wood frog has the ability the go into complete hibernation (including complete heart stoppage) during the winter season. The heart, lungs, and brain completely freeze. In spring, the frog thaws out, and comes "back to life".
