    I just heard on the radio this morning that there are certain types of frogs (tree frogs are one) which can freeze solid in the winter, and then revive in the spring. No heartbeat, no breathing. The only thing is that they need to be packed in snow so that they don't dehydrate. If they dehydrate too much then they revive but as they body defrosts the damaged tissue can get infected, and they can die.

      There are some fish (some species of carps, IIRC) which produce alcohol to avoid freezing.
