The freezing temperatures brought on by the bomb cyclone were no match for alligators in North Carolina.
The Shallotte River Swamp Park recently shared a video of an alligator poking its snout through a frozen pond. The video quickly went viral, with many people assuming that the gator would not survive the frigid temperatures.
However, the alligator specifically positioned itself in the water with its snout up in order to survive. According to the park, the alligators are able to sense when the water is about to freeze. Because of this, they are able to go into a lethargic-like state in order to survive.
Once the ice melted down, the gators were able to return to their normal state. The Shallotte River Swamp Park even posted a video showing the animals after the ice melted in the park’s alligator sanctuary. Please SHARE this amazing video with your friends!
