• Chionophile

From the Greek word chion, meaning "snow", and -phile, meaning "lover".

Chionophiles are organisms that live only when there is significant snow cover.

These are aquatic organisms that can thrive in cold winter conditions, have special adaptations that help them survive the harshest winters.

For example, the polar waters are home to the killer whale and the leopard seal.
