So I take it that my articcle was rejected. Very Interesting article! I give it a 9/10 score! -- կրակ (խոսել) -- 08:54, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

You know, for all the research put into this project, I am surprised the writer completely skipped over the fact that several types of fish, including the very common Goldfish, can be frozen for months at a time, thawed, and live. We use it ourselves to transfer live fish long distances, and can be done, from scientific research, indefinitely as it has been tested at doing it to the same fish over many years without any adverse effects. I am almost in complete shock the author didn't take that route, as that is the most easily explainable way for the Zora's to survive. They are people of water, and like other creatures of water, they can survive the freezing process. The fact that fish can survive the freezing process was an older theory for how some of the older dinosaur sea creatures may have survived the ice age and or asteroid strike by being frozen solid by the northern icecap. It was also an original theory for how the lochness monster could possibly be around (though of course there is no evidence the loch ness monster ever was around to begin with).

Still, it WAS a fun read, I just still can't believe it didn't explore how actual sea animals like fish do when frozen, since they survive just fine. Nathanial Rumphol-Janc 11:40, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

I loved how this article took a Zelda topic, and flung it up in the air like pizza dough. I have never seen anything like this anywhere across the Zelda community, and as such, it is a seldom-seen and vibrant topic! Kudos, Midnafan! User:Cipriano 119/sig 18:59, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

What kind of grades do you get? Minda of Darkness 22:03, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, everyone :) I'm glad you all liked my article and I love the response it has garnered! Even Informer posted about it :) In response to your comment, Rumphol-Janc, I was surprised myself that I hadn't heard of what you said. So I did a bit of research, and found that information on those topics is scarce. I know that goldfish can survive in partially frozen ponds, and they can survive freezing to an extent, but they are now specified for it like the wood frog, and suffer from the same damage we would if a human or another unprepared animal was frozen. I was also surprised about the dinosaurs, too, although I have heard that theory as well, it didn't come to mind when I was writing my article, nor did it come up in my research. Of course, if I really wanted to I could delve deeper into the topics, but unless I were to make a part two or do a continuation of my article, it is too late, though I would probably have included them in this article if I could. An interesting tip, though, thank you. And while that question is really rather off topic, Midna of Darkness, I do get high grades ;) I'm excited that my article has drawn such praise, and I've been inspired to continue writing more Zelda-themed articles now!

i would like to point out that in twilight princess, the zoras were spirits when they were frozen and as such, would not have to deal with the biological problems of being frozen Alexob6 19:53, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
The frog comparison seemed dead on to me, as I always remind people that Zora's are amphibious. In any case, if you ever want to make revisions just notify an admin, and the page can be unlocked. Great Article and I can't wait to see more Wiki Exclusives. Axiomist (talk) 14:27, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Princess Ruto

I was wondering, could an image of her be in there? She is probably the Zora we gamers have interacted with most, and I think the differences observed in time in OOT could give us information about the biological maturation of female Zoras. Furthermore, she may exhibit unique examples of how their attributes are potentially altered by having Sage magical powers, if at all. I am not sure, but she has interacted in a variety of environments like Jabu Jabu and the Water Temple (and presumably she was also in the main Zora area with her father King Zora although I can't remember if I saw her there after rescuing her or not, I think so.

Cryoprotectant, not Cyroprotectant

I found a typo error in the page of "The Scrience of Cryobiology in Zoras", but, as no one is permitted to edit this page, I wasn't able to correct it myself. So add a notification here. The typo error is in the word "cyroprotectant" - The proper is Cryoprotectant, not Cyroprotectant. I guess this is just a typo mistake ^_^ --SilentResident 00:48, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! I've fixed the article accordingly. I appreciate you bringing this to our attention!Justin(Talk) 12:32, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
