Toad migration in Jiangsu, China

Thousands of toads were spotted at a bridge in Taizhou, Jiangsu province, China, on May 9. According to local expert, the toads were enduring a mass migration because of the depleting oxygen resource in a nearby river… but from the pic it seems like the chance of survival for the toads are not looking good on the road either.

Update – this story was first shared before the Sichuan earthquake on May 13. There are speculations that the toads migration was an omen, and the rumours were heated up as a similar toad migration phenomenon was spotted in Mianzhu, one of the quake affected areas, just a couple of days before the disaster.

Personally, I don’t think the toad migrations are related to the quake in anyway, but I can’t be sure… as the world is always full of mysteries. Regardless, what really matters now is to rescue the quake survivals and help them rebuild their homes. Try to help a bit if possible ok?
