And finally, lizard Popsicles, anyone? Many members of the reptilian genus Liolaemus can supercool their bodies, tolerate full-body freezing and live farther south and at higher elevations than any other known lizard species. Scientists are still figuring how they survive such cold climates, but one thing is clear: The lizards are indisputably the coolest on the planet. Scientists found some species of the lizard can withstand temperatures as low as 21.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Most Liolaemus are found in Argentina and Chile, although one researcher has even heard stories of them walking on a glacier in Patagonia.
