1897, June 30: Shower of Frogs at Birmingham, England

On Wednesday, June 30, 1897, during a storm of "considerable fury," a shower of frogs fell in the suburb of Moseley, in Birmingham, England. The frogs were found scattered about in gardens, and were almost white in color. It was theorized that the animals had been absorbed by a small waterspout that was then driven over the town during the storm.
