Lol that's some fucked up shit. 3 times their normal size? Just imagine how big that is. Imagine a human swelling to 3x it's normal size and then exploding. Hideous

You know that brewery theory isn't even that far-fetched. I've gotten EXTREMELY bloated off wine where the yeast was still alive in it. So my guess would be some sort of fungal contamination like the article said.

Either way I want to see a movie of the exploding toads!

Ok this guy thinks crows are to blame, i'm not so sure about this explanation:


Exploding toads in Germany: blame the crows

Thu Apr 28, 2:11 PM ET

BERLIN (AFP) - Toads have been exploding by the hundred in Germany because they are being attacked by crows, a veterinary surgeon revealed.

Animal welfare workers and veterinarians had reported that as many as 1,000 toads had swelled to bursting point and exploded in recent days, propelling their entrails up to a metre (three feet) into the air.

Now a veterinary surgeon, Frank Mutschmann, who has examined the remains of the toads, said they had been pierced with a single peck by crows trying to eat their livers. This in turn caused the toads to explode.

"The toads swell up as a form of self-defence. But when their livers are taken away and their stomachs are punctured, their blood vessels explode, their lungs collapse and the other organs come out," Mutschmann said.

"Crows are intelligent animals. They learn very quickly how to eat the toads' livers," he said, adding that between three and five crows could kill around 100 toads.

So many toads have died in a lake in the Altona district of Hamburg that it has been dubbed "the pond of death."


Quote:

"You see the animals crawling on the ground, swelling and then exploding," German conservationist Werner Smolnik told AFP news agency.




This guy from the first article mentions nothing about bird attacks
