  And finally, a strange animal whose heart stops but still lives!

 Spring Peeper, Canadian small frog 3 centimeters long, is resistant to frost. From zero temperatures not exceeding -7 ° C (otherwise it’s death), it transforms its liver glycogen into a kind of antifreeze. But the formation of ice is allowed in the extracellular spaces. So when the percentage reached 60% ice in his body, his heart beats per minute down to 0 …! But the frog does not die!

-David O. McKay
