Did you know that some Missouri frogs freeze nearly solid in winter and their hearts stop beating. Then they revive! Some owls start nesting in January and their eggs can survive temperatures of 10 degrees or below freezing! Ground squirrels sleep the winter away from October to April – without waking up! Some snakes crowd together in dens by the thousands to spend winter together!
