Are there any animals that freeze during the winter only to be frozen out in spring?

    The animals that come closest to this are probably certain frogs, especially wood frogs – which can be found in North American as far north as the Arctic Circle. No animal can survive the insides of their cells freezing extensively, but wood frogs can and do survive many of their internal fluids that are outside of the cells freezing solid in the winter. Wood frogs can live through more than four weeks of constantly freezing weather, and are able to survive the freezing of as much as 70% of their body water. Amazingly, these frogs recover almost completely within a few hours of thawing, and are able resume their normal behaviors without any major permanent damage.
