At the terminus, the platform offered a breathtaking view of the glacier. I was walking along a path, when I spied an information sign. I it. I was struck with surprise. I my eyes, It was so unexpected! It that the glacier's surface was a habitat for microorganisms such as the glacier flea. The small, wingless insect to life on the glacier's surface. Therefore, I concluded that the glacier fleas of surviving even at temperature as low as minus 30 Celsius and high U.V. radiation.

I the explanations: these glacier fleas stored sugar in their body fluid. They found their useful sugar in a microscopic algae which grew on the glacier, hidden into tiny pockmarks. called cryoconite holes, in the ice.
