Tadpole Dancing

Are They Singing In The Rain?

Residents and scientists in Japan are searching for an explanation after it started raining tadpoles. Clouds of dead tadpoles appear to have fallen around Ishikawa Prefecture. In one instance, the tadpoles covered the windscreens of cars in a civic centre car park.

Those Japanese always take the original and change it in some way.

How very strange. I cannot imagine it. My mind stops me with logical reasoning, but there is none to be found!

crazy! i was reading somewhere recently about waterspouts and how they can pick up fish and frog and drop them miles away in seemingly dry territory. maybe that is the case here. imagine the tadpoles were a little surprised as well.

OK that just creeps me out!

First it's raining tadpoles, next it will be raining cat and dogs, then we'll probably see flying frogs, who will join up with the flying squirrels. Who needs a three-ring circus!?

I saw the article about it and thought, Ewwww. That's worse than raining cats and dogs.

Well, apparently these polliwogs (love that word) knew about the breed in water and live on land part, but no one told them they could not fly through the air to get from point a to point b.

They get sucked up into the air by water spouts and can travel miles. Strange phenomena.
