Walking through the park this afternoon, I saw this little fella. And about ten of his pals. And about three of their girlfriends, who were looking a little harassed, poor souls. What I don’t know is:
- How they were finding their way over a large hill and down to the lake, &
- How amphibians cope with nearly-frozen water. Fish I understand – only the top surface is frozen, and that insulates the deeper water – but air-breathers? Won’t they freeze?
