Frogs and snails and snakes? Who needs ’em!

Toads are disappearing.  According to the U.S. Geological survey, frogs are declining at alarming rates.  Rates that may lead to their extinction.  So are other small amphibians that rely on fresh water.  But nobody knows why.

I guess it’s because nobody sees any relationship between the drugs (pharmaceutical drugs) that are being excreted in human urine to the point that they are detected in high levels in the rivers, and fresh river water that frogs take in through their skin.  Scientists.  Go figure.

So now we have problems with losing the bee population, losing the frogs, and losing the bats.  I suppose it’s not important.  (Tongue in cheek.)
