Because of the cold weather in North Carolina, alligators are frozen in the ice. VIDEO
Alligators at Shallotte River Swamp Park in North Carolina froze up along with the pond in which they dwell.
From the outside, it looks like the reptiles have died: they do not move and do not react to anything, and only faces with noses are visible on the surface, writes TJ.
However, in fact, alligators went into deep hibernation (“brumatia”), leaving part of the head on the surface to breathe. In the “brumacii” state, animals can stay for several months: at this time, the reptile's metabolism slows down and they do not need food. In addition, they lower body temperature and save energy to maintain it.
When the ice melts, the alligators will wake up and continue to live a normal life.
Alligators are able to survive through hibernation in almost any weather. During the “brumatia” they do not move to save energy, and they are unlikely to wake up even if they step on them.
