Pororo:


Glycerol as a cryoprotectant depresses the freezing point of microscopic cells, enhancing supercooling.
It does so by forming strong hydrogen bonds with water molecules, competing with water-water hydrogen bonding.
This disrupts the crystal lattice formation of ice unless the temperature is significantly lowered.

The organism must have a compound similar to glycerol performing the same function.
Insightful, I am really learning alot. Thanks
