QUESTION OF THE DAY:
After a hard rain I have noticed many tiny frogs hopping around. Do they come out from their hiding places or do they drop from the clouds, after being sucked up into a storm?
In the United States, documented cases of showers of frogs have been recorded since 1794, usually during heavy summer rainstorms. Whirlwinds, waterspouts, and tornadoes are given as the most likely explanations. Falls of fish, birds, and other animals also have been reported.
