Exploding toads linked to Global Warming

Strange things are happening in Europe:
Hundreds of toads have met an unexplained, explosive demise in Germany in recent days, it was reported on Saturday.

According to reports from animal welfare workers and veterinarians as many as a thousand of the amphibians have perished after their bodies swelled to bursting point and their entrails were propelled for up to a metre.

It is like "a science fiction film", according to Werner Smolnik of a nature protection society in the northern city of Hamburg, where the phenomenon of the exploding toad has been observed.

"You see the animals crawling on the ground, swelling and then exploding," he said.
There's no mention of Global Warming in the article, I just threw that in to beat the loonies to the punch, so to speak.

A similar scenario has been playing out in the US for years; Michael Moore will explode, eventually.

Cane toads used to go up nicely if you prised their gob open, and put a lit ciggie between their warty toad lips; for some reason, when they start to inhale smoke they can't exhale, and pop their lungs. Pretty impressive, and I'd say some future serial-killer sausage-eaters have discovered this quirk of nature.
