If you’re planning a trip to Germany, you might want to pack a raincoat and a helmet. And no, Helmet isn’t some German guy either.
Apparently parks in the city of Hamburg are being faced with a very unusual problem,
Nobody seems to know why it’s happening, but over the past 4 days, over 1000 toads have spontaneously exploded in various city parks sending entrails flying into the sky and leaving body parts scattered everywhere.
Nature protection worker Werner Smolnik described it this way:
“You see the toads crawling along the ground, swelling and getting bigger as they go until they are like little tennis balls, and then they suddenly explode.”
Personally I think they should make some kind of tour out of this. I’m sure that a fair number of people would pay good money to watch toads blow up. I know I’d give some thought to going and I’m sure I could find a few people to come along.
