Wood Frogs

There’s a popular children’s movie, Frozen, that I have “watched” way too many times. It’s one of my children’s favorite movies and it is always on as soon as the first snow falls. In case you haven’t seen it, the main character has the ability to freeze people and objects with the wave of her hand. When we first watched it my son asked me “can people really be frozen?” I think he was disappointed to hear my answer, “no”. However, his curiosity did remind me of an animal who can freeze and thaw….a little brown frog who spends winter almost completely frozen, the Wood Frog.
