    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 ! !

    How about the rain makes a nearby pond to overflow, and after the rain people see frogs or fish, hence no evidence

    I experienced frog rain in my small town in Central Asia. Although I only saw an aftermath, my aunt told me that it was normal in that area. Frogs were very small and all over the place, it was hard to walk without stepping on one or two.

    Remember, explanations are ALWAYS proofs. The most logical explanation for all of these events is my fairy fuckin godmother. My fairy fuckin godmother waved her magic fuckin wand and poof ... frogs ... fish ... idiots ... horses ... fall from the sky. Anything is fuckin photoshopped.

    Because God is still waiting for his shipment from Lockheed Martin to arrive. When it does, frogs will be replaced with Hellfire-2.

    I was always under the impression that it was tiny fertilised fish/frog eggs being evaporated up into the sky during intense heatwaves, trapped in the water vapours. Then the atmospheric pressure and moisture holds them for a while in clouds, while winds transport them hundreds of miles until their mass becomes too much and gravity (along with regular cloudburst and rainfall) see them drop back to the ground?

    You guys have it all wrong the sky is actually the bottom of a lake (that's why it's blue). When something crashes through the glass that holds the water in such as a "meteor" then it cracks and rains sometimes letting out fish and frogs.
