Toads Go Boom. . .

Ok, this BBC Story is scary and funny at the same time.


Thousands of the amphibians have died in recent days in a pond in Hamburg's Altona district, with their bodies swelling to bursting point. The toads' entrails are propelled for up to a metre (3.2ft), in scenes that have been likened to science fiction. Scientists are baffled. Possible explanations include a unknown virus or a fungus in the pond.


ADDENDUM:
Guess what, it's a natural phenomenon. That's what I get for posting about stuff from 2005.

Reminds me of the recycled 2003 closest pass of Mars that gets repeated every year now, except embellished with "disk visible the size of the moon". Funny and scary, I agree.
