The Arctic hare
Arctic hares are found mainly in the north of Canada and Greenland - and these guys do not move to the south with the onset of cold weather. Their population is quite numerous, as the Arctic Circle is not as much of predatory animals that can develop a speed higher than 80 km / h - and that way is to skedaddle from the dangers of the arctic hare. When the temperature becomes fatally low, the animals get in packs to a hundred individuals. Closely pressed to each other, they generate sufficient heat.
African frog Pixie
One of the few amphibians, which was able to adapt to the challenging desert conditions. Pixie can wait out the dry season, burrowing into the mud. Drying up, it forms a kind of protective cocoon which prevents frog from terribly high temperatures.
Habitat ordinary tree frog covers almost all of North America. This wonderful creation has developed their own survival techniques in extreme cold. Tree frog literally freezes himself alive using large amounts of glucose, in order to protect their internal organs from damage water crystals - with this problem, by the way, struggling unsuccessfully CRYOLOGY working on the preservation of the human body in suspended animation.
Himalayan jumping spider
Champion All-survivalist planet Himalayan jumping spider if deliberately chose the most inappropriate conditions for life.

Tardigrada looks like a worm, who had put on a suit sumo wrestler. This tiny invertebrate found everywhere, from mountain peaks to the ocean basins. Tardigrades can live without food for 10 years - and it is only a fraction of its capacity. In 2007, a group of scientists (knackers!) Sent straight tardigrades to open space. Vacuum, -458 ° F, the radiation can destroy a person in a split second: guess who all did not hurt.
