This isn't about the fact that I just learned there are alligators in North Carolina. Which ok, yeah that makes sense and I don't need your judgement right now. No, this story is about something really cool alligators can do!
The Shallotte River Park Swamp posted a video to YouTube recently to show how alligators survive in freezing cold temperatures.
The video shows several alligators in the slushy, icy water with their nostrils in the air at the Ocean Isle Beach park.
George Howard, the manager of the park, told the Associated Press that 18 of the park’s American alligators froze in place Monday and remained like that into Tuesday.
