Alligators stick snouts through ice to survive freezing conditions, swamp park says

"The Shallotte River Swamp Park says American alligators can live in water temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Officials with the park say when the water or air temperature is too low for them to be active, they go into a state of brumation, similar to hibernation. Their metabolism slows down in the cold conditions and they go into a lethargic state."
