It’s early on a Friday so I’m just going to put this out there and just leave it for you guys to pick up and pass on. It’s a freaking toad that, like me, turns into a pebble when it’s scared.

The toad finds a hill, curls up, and tenses. It just falls away from danger, using gravity to propel it to wherever there’s less danger. The resulting slow-mo pictures, taken by the BBC, are pretty wacky.
