Polar bears are one of the few animals that can actually survive the freezing Arctic temperatures. Did you know that these bears can swim in freezing arctic waters for 100 miles?

Why do birds fly North in the Spring if they will have to hibernate back South anyways in the Winter?

The reason for this is there are more food & nesting opportunities in the North for birds- this is because the higher up North they go the less birds there will be.

As soon as the temperatures start to warm up, they fly up North as fast as they can.

The farther North the birds can travel the more likely they are to have better life opportunities- assuming they can migrate back south as well!

Where do all the insects go in the Winter?

There are a few different places they go. One of the things they do is bury themselves underground and "hibernate."

Underground they can stay warm, and they remain dormant until the temperature is warmer.

When it is so cold outside they are virtually unavailable to move around!

Before Winter comes, make sure to double check that all of your safety gear & Winter tools are working. For example, it wouldn't be fun to realize your snow-blower doesn't work AFTER the driveway has been filled with snow.

Also make sure that you have emergency supplies in the event of a power outage!!!

Possums prefer to stay in the wild, but they will unfortunately sometimes try to sneak into people's homes, get in between the walls, or stay in the attic in order to keep warm during the Winter.

This can lead to damages in your home from stains, scratching, biting, etc.

Squirrels and other rodents have front teeth that never stop growing. In fact, the latin word "rodere" means "to gnaw," which is why they're classified as rodents!

Did you know that "opossums" and "possums" are technically 2 different animals, however they are used interchangeably in the USA?
