One species that seems to fall from the sky a lot is worms. That’s right, pretty icky huh? Around the world there have been many eyewitness accounts of worms plummeting to earth. It’s occurred throughout history and the craziest thing is it has happened during calm weather conditions as well as stormy ones.
9. Flying Foxes
In January of this year, the heatwave in Australia was so severe, it melted Tarmac. Residents of Campbelltown in New South Wales started freaking out as flying foxes, also known as fruit bats, started raining down. Yes bats, falling down on your head.
Frog rain sounds like a weird phenomenon but it isn’t all that strange. There are various recorded cases of it happening and the idea of amphibians falling from the sky is also in the public’s mind from Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie ‘Magnolia’. Even though it sounds crazy, it actually happens!
People in Brazil got a shock in 2013 when the sky seemed to fill up with spiders! If you’re an arachnophobe you might want to look away now! This happened in the town of Santo Antonio Da Platina, west of Sao Paulo. While in the Northeast there are tons of blizzards, in Brazil, its raining spiders! Which do you prefer??
Something fishy was going on in Australia and by fishy, that’s what I mean. In the town of Lajamanu on the edge of the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory locals had a close encounter of the scaly kind. In 2010 hundreds of fish rained down on them in an incident which left them baffled.
New Year’s Eve wasn’t such a happy time for people in the town of Beebe in Arkansas. They were surprised by the appearance of 4-5,000 red-winged blackbirds which fell to the ground out of nowhere, turning the place into an avian graveyard. After some investigation it was concluded that the birds had all suffered blunt force trauma!
In 2009 Japan found it was raining tadpoles, as well as fish and frogs. We’ve had both already already so let’s focus on tadpoles. Wow, tadpoles! That really is a crazy thing to fall from the sky, huh? Maybe some of them got so scared they aged prematurely and became frogs before they hit the ground! That makes sense right?
You could call this entry a case of poetic justice! In 1997 a Korean fisherman called Kim Ho was looking for a good catch near the Falkland Islands. You may know the islands from the infamous Falklands Conflict. Well it seems the violence hadn’t quite ended yet, as Kim Ho discovered to his cost.
I’ve mentioned all kinds of creepy-crawlies so far in this video so you know it was only a matter of time before I started talking about snakes! This is a historical case which dates back to 1877 in South Memphis. Thousands of black snakes were reported to have dropped during a rainstorm.
In general, I’ve been referring to groups of animals that have been picked up by the weather and dumped miles from their home. Some of them, like the spiders, do this by choice. But this guy was definitely misplaced by accident.
