The Survival Of The Wood Frogs

In September, the wood frogs of Alaska freeze. What does this mean? Well, they don’t freeze completely solid but mostly solid. This notion implies that in total, two-thirds of their body water will turn to ice. So, what happens if you were to pick one up? 

They would not move at all, and you would have to be very gentle. If you were to bend a limb, it would break. What is going on inside the bodies? Their hearts stop beating too, and their blood ceases to flow.
