    It doesn't seem possible, but animal rain is definitely real, and there is an actual scientific explanation for it... probably.

      So when was the last water spout in Northeast Africa near the Nile river? An entire Dominant Western Religion branched from this Hebrew/Jewish texts.

      SciShow Sorry bud! But the water spout theory doesn't cut it! Some reasons you mentioned yourself. I'll give you more. I lived in Kansas for a time . My wife and I experienced frogs falling. Now several things here. Kansas is very dry and no lakes or significant rivers are there. How far would they have had to travel? Like you mentioned it was just these small frogs of one species. If the water spout did it why no twigs, mud,leaves,etc?

    anyone else find this less than satisfying? The video title suggests we'll know why by the end. But no one knows? none of our explanations fully fit the observed phenomena? Video title shouldve been "magic confirmed"

    I'm behind the same-size theory since shape influences aerodynamics a lot and that could explain why it's just one type of animal.

    Hey Hank could you narrate SciShow Space instead of that annoying girl with the arms flailing around everywhere when shes talking? Her voice and fluctuations are my nails on chalkboard, you'd be much better for the job!

    You saying "Dorothy made it all the way to Oz" is so absurdly unscientific. You don't specify how far away Oz is, so it's not informative. Come on, man. Really.

    I am truly amazed at the uneducated moronic people posting things like raining bears.this phenomenon has been happening all through history it’s just in the past 100 years it is happening more and more frequently.all sorts of creatures such as snakes,turtles,frogs,fish but since the entire U.S. media is censored it will not be reported on.make no mistake this is a sign of the end of times.think about it why only a certain species.for example a specific species of whatever fish can’t be caused by a tornado they cannot separate the various wildlife and just dump a certain species of snakes 200 to 400 hundreds of miles inland ! !
