Throughout history, there’ve been accounts of fish, frogs, birds and even spiders falling from the sky over many parts of the world. And maybe you’ve experienced an animal fall yourself, or at least thought you did. It’s not always clear. For example, once, one of us (Don Machholz) walked outside one day and saw a bunch of live toads on the ground, hopping around. But did they fall from the sky? In this case, no. It turns out toads had come out from their hiding places after a heavy rain.
