24 Photos of Creatures Better-Equipped for the Cold than You

Themed Collections

27 November 2017

Posted by LisaP

Some animals migrate for winter. Some load their bellies and take refuge underground. Some whinge, whine and grab gloves, hat and scarf and head for a grande-load-me-up-with-lava style coffee just to make it through morning. Then there’s the humble wood frog. How do they spend winter, you might ask? As a hard and crunchy amphibious ice cube, to put it bluntly. So hard and crunchy in fact, that they’re essentially dead until spring, when little hearts start beating once more and the critters gaily hop away until next time. While the majority of creatures don’t go to such bizarre and frankly disturbing lengths to survive the cold season, there’s no denying they’re far superior to us in their natural evolutionary adaptations to make it through the big freeze. From Europe to Alaska, and Asia to the Polar ice, all manner of beasts stand head, shoulders, a thick layer and huge thermostatic prowess ahead of us. On its own, winter makes for a spectacular landscape to behold. In unison with nature’s own so impressively equipped for that sub-zero chill, well, photographic opportunity abounds. Take a look.

Bright eyes, bushy tail and a steadfast stare play through isolated view of a fox on the prowl in the snow.
