Shallotte River Swamp Park shared incredible footage, on January 6, showing alligators encased in ice at the park in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Shallotte River Swamp Park wrote in a blog post, on Saturday, that the cold-blooded gators could endure temperatures dipping to 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4.4 degrees Celsius) by slowing their metabolism in a hibernation-like process called brumation.
