This is really bizarre (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=1516&ncid=1516&e=2&u=/afp/20050423/od_afp/germanytoadsoffbeat_050423161657)
<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2"> Hundreds of toads have met a bizarre and sinister end in Germany in recent days, it was reported: they exploded.

According to reports from animal welfare workers and veterinarians as many as a thousand of the amphibians have perished after their bodies swelled to bursting point and their entrails were propelled for up to a metre (three feet).

It is like "a science fiction film", according to Werner Smolnik of a nature protection society in the northern city of Hamburg, where the phenomenon of the exploding toad has been observed.

"You see the animals crawling on the ground, swelling and then exploding."</font>Gotta wonder what's causing it.

Maybe a case of Alka-Seltzer fell off a truck, and the toads dug right in.

Maybe they were public servants who messed with the wicked witch from "Wizard of OZ". I seem to remember bad things happen to those who do.
