1.4.3 Freeze tolerance in ectothermic vertebrates

In Britain, the vertebrate class Amphibia is represented by frogs, toads and newts. Amphibians are ectotherms, meaning that they are unable to generate large quantities of heat within their bodies, so their body temperature is close to that of their surroundings. The majority of amphibian species avoid the lethal consequences of being frozen, by digging their way under a large object, such as a rock, or deep into the soil, below the level that is penetrated by frost.
