Hello, I'm new here. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good online site for info on the phenomena of finding toads trapped in stone?

Thanks, Lisa. Hi, Benjo.

Heh heh, I was just running a search on the case of the pterodactyl discovered in limestone when I came across this amusing example of poor grammar:

The French lumbermen could not survive the frog? Lol...

I have the Reader's Digest Unexplained Mysteries Book, they have mutiple cases of finding frogs and toads in geodes. Quite remarkable actually, not sure if many tests have been done on this subject, but I think it is facinating.

I've noticed the similarity seems to be that all these animals are reptilian/amphibious. Wonder if it's not some sort of trait thye have? After all if I remember correctly in the wild both toads, frogs, lizards, and snakes hibernate in the winter. Wonder if they don't just slip into the same "hibernation" type state when entombed in snow? Or perhaps a suspended animation type effect?

That's a pretty good theory Naveed.

Even in a hibernation state the creatures wouldn't have sufficient energy to last long.  I would put it at a decade max, and that's probably a stretch.

Even more remarkable that some of the specimen recovered were still alive, though they expired shortly after being disentombed. ( I have the Readers Digest and Time-Life sets--gotta love garage sales!)

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

i have heard of this phenonminon(spelling!), even though it was a short artical in a "would you believe it" type book.  it was in Sweden i think, and in a perified log.   the frog/toad was described as having a slightly pointed head, a tail(?), no toe pads, and a small, short toung. it died shortly after being found in a laboratory.
note:  i dont know how much of thdis was true, and how much was done up to make it weirder. take it or leave it.
by the way, i am new here. grin2.gif

Toads in stone? That is very odd. I have heard about raw meat falling from the sky(something like that)  

Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving.

In arid areas of our planet, such as deserts and tundra’s, some types of frogs and fish burry themselves far below the ground and hibernate for phenomenal lengths of time. The record is held by a toad that hibernated for 27 years! Unbelievably…  blink.gif
