Antarctic continent is the coldest region on Earth. Most of
this land is buried underneath masses of ice and snow that can
grow to be one mile thick. Mountains peek out of the top of
Antarctica's thick glaciers. There are many kinds of animals
that live in the water and on the land that surrounds Antartica.
Two 6 month long winter weather seasons along with severe winds
make the Antarctic polar region more than just a cold place.
Only part of Antarctica has been explored and scientists are
hoping to be able to study more of this frigid environment in
the next few years.
