A disturbing trend has seen the rate of amphibians born with deformities in the U.S. increase to an estimated 8 percent.

The odd amphibian deformations have included salamanders and frogs with missing or extra limbs and digits, and other amphibians born so malformed that, sadly, they don’t survive.
