Why don't deer freeze to death in winter?

Why don't bird's legs freeze in the winter?

How does the floating ice keep fish and other animals from getting crushed to death in winter by freezing lakes and ponds?

The icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans support a great amount of marine life. For millions of years life has remained unchanged, making it possible for these animal

Why don't oceans freeze over in the Winter?

The oceans are saline or salt water. This affects the temperature at which they freeze. Plain water freezes at about 0°C at sea level, but saline, at the concentrations norma

Why do shallow lakes freeze quickly in winter and deep lakes not at all?

Water stores what is called latent heat. This is basicially the energy required to convert water through its stages. The lack thereof of this energy is the change from liquid

Do fish in lakes freeze in the winter?

To answer this question, you have to account for many variables. Excluding morphology of the lake and generalizing behavior (as well as species of fish) it is possible for fis

What are the special properties of water that enables fish to survive in lakes that freeze in the winter?

A2. The whole of the lake volume does not freeze in winter. Due to the fact that ice expands when it freezes, and consequently floats. My old science teacher pointed out that

Does a whole lake freeze in winter?

The entire surface of a lake may certainly become frozen during the wintertime in some areas, but unless the lake in question is fairly small, it is unlikely for a lake to fre

What property of water allows fish in a lake to survive winters freezing temperatures?

I think you are probably talking about the fact that frozen water (ice) is less dense than liquid water, so freezing temperatures will enable the ice to form on top of the wat

Why don't lakes become overcrowded with fish?

Every habitat has a carrying capacity for a given organism based on  available space and resources such as food. This goes for fish in a  lake. If the population of fish exc
