COOL VIDEO! Alligators poke their noses through ice to survive the cold

Video shows alligators surviving frigid, freezing North Carolina water by keeping their nostrils in the air

So, the alligators are frozen in place with their snouts poking out of the ice to be able to continue to breathe. They'll stick their nose above the surface at just the right moment and allow the water to freeze around it.

Alligators in southeastern North Carolina poke their noses through ice to survive unusual winter chills battering east coast of the United States since last week.

"It's a survival mechanism", George Howard, the general manager of the park, told local reporters on Tuesday, "They'll go wherever it is warmest".

Alligators then enter "a state of brumation, like hibernating".

If the alligators didn't keep their snouts above the water surface, they'd perish in about 24 hours ― the maximum amount of time they can stay underwater without coming up for air.

Los Angeles Rams face their biggest test of the season now
Goff finished 24 of 45 for 259 yards and a touchdown but it was not enough to beat a Falcons defense loaded up to stop the run. Devonta Freeman scored on a 3-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and led the Falcons' ground game with 66 yards.

"Obviously, that is not optimal, being frozen like that", he said. That's why you don't see indigenous alligators north of North Carolina. But fortunately for them they have quite the tactic to survive the frozen waters.

But fear not, animal lovers.

The "bomb cyclone" that froze the eastern seaboard of the USA last week forced many to take extreme measures to stay warm and stay alive, including a group of rather inventive alligators in North Carolina. Temperatures at the park have warmed up lately, freeing the gators from the icy pond.

Now you know. See ya later, alligator!
