Doesn’t this look like a desert ice fern?

Frost flowers? Take a look at these frost flowers from the Arctic and now look at the frost flower sample taken by the Jeff Bowman team in Antarctica here. In 2009, Jeff collected samples from the Arctic (image).

    I think no because they don’t do any thing but fall from the sky and they turn into water or maybe even some people eat them because they always do. So why would snowflakes have life if they just melt or just get eating.

    No I actually don’t think that there is life on these petals Why? Well I don’t think that there is life on these petals. The reason why I don’t thin that there is life on these petals is becaus eit seems like IF there was something on them they would really cold. Mostly because the petals look so small that it could possibly have anything on them. (:

    No,i don’t think there are life in these petals because they are in the coldest part of the earth anything there in the freezing cold would not survive.

    No I don’t think there is life in these pedals cause they are on the bottom of the world and it has a frost bite all over the place and it looks cool.

    No because all it just is frozen and looks like a plant .

    No, I don’t think that there is life in these petals because Antartica doesn’t get that much moisture.
