Holy aya-toadah! Iranian woman ‘gives birth to a frog’

June 28, 2004: According to the Islamic Republic News Agency, an unnamed woman from the southeastern city of Iranshahr delivered a live gray frog after what was called “a bizarre labor.”

The animal’s birth followed severe bleeding and was reportedly covered by mud.

According to an Iranian gynecologist, the frog larve entered the woman’s body – possibly while she swam in dirty water – where it grew to adult size.

Some medical experts, however, commented on the frog’s similarity to a human.

No comment was available from the surprised father.
