Synopsis

Survival at 40 Below by Debbie S. Miller

As temperatures drop, the animals that make the tundra home must ready themselves for survival. See how animals like the arctic ground squirrel and the woolly bear caterpillar use special coping devices to keep warm as they hibernate their way through the frigid winter months. Then when the temperatures finally rise, these creatures emerge and the pulse of life returns to the arctic.
