Winter

In winter, spring peepers and chorus frogs are hibernating in mud, deep enough to prevent actually freezing solid, though a chemical in chorus frog cells helps prevent fluid in the cells from freezing even if their bodies get very cold. Frogs breathe through their skin and can't eat at all in winter, so their bodies stay alive using the nutrients stored over the summer and fall. Do you think they're bored? Are they thinking about anything?
