And you thought spontaneous human combustion was funny. Okay not ha-ha funny, just bizarre, quizzacal. Now there’s the odd fate of the exploding toad to ponder. According to an AFP story, hundreds of toads in Hamburg, Germany have met a grizzly end by puffing up to three and a half times their normal size and then going kablooey. Biologists have no idea what’s going on. Theories range from a virus, to an unknown fungi that may have infected their pond, to crow attacks that literally scare them to death.
