The Arctic Tree Frog (Rana sylvatica) is unusual because it can freeze during interior Alaskas long winter, then thaw out in the spring. Known to survive only a few places in Alaska, this one is part of the Birch Hill (Fairbanks) population, this frog is extremely important for scientists researching the affects of freezing on cell tissue.
