On Wednesday, one of Greece's major highways was shut down for two-hours by a horde of frogs.
Police Chief Giorgos Thanoglou said that the "millions" of frogs covered the tarmac like a carpet near the town of Langadas, which is approximately 12 miles east of Thessaloniki.
After three cars skidded off the road in their attempt to dodge the frogs, authorities closed the highway. There were no (human) injuries.
Thanoglou said the amphibians were most likely looking for food.
The second plague of Egypt was frogs. According to Wikipedia, "God commanded Moses to tell Aaron to stretch his staff over the water, and hordes of frogs came and overran Egypt. Pharaoh's sorcerers were also able to duplicate this plague with their magic. However, since they were unable to remove it, Pharaoh was forced to grant permission for the Israelites to leave so that Moses would agree to remove the frogs. To prove that the plague was actually a divine punishment, Moses let Pharaoh choose the time that it would end. Pharaoh chose the following day, and all the frogs died the next day. Nevertheless, Pharaoh rescinded his permission, and the Israelites stayed in Egypt."
The highway is open today, but traffic is reported to be slow and the bizarre disruption expected to last through the weekend.
The horde of frogs is only one of many bizarre animal stories to be circulating the Web in the past few days. Others include a "hybrid bear" (part polar bear/part grizzly) and a "creature straight out of pre-historic times" found near the zoo.
