It's no longer a mystery. We actually went over this in my biology class a few weeks ago. A type of parasitic flatworm embeds itself in the still forming limb buds of tadpoles. This causes the body to produce extra legs.

It could be connected considering that certain amounts of Atrazine are allowed in the water supply.

Newly Discovered Fanged-Frog Gives Birth to Live Tadpoles

"Herpatologist Jim McGuire found proof this summer that the frog, one of a group of roughly 25 species in Indonesia that have two fangs used for fighting, lays not eggs or even live froglets but live tadpoles. It’s the only frog species in the world to do so.”

Another chink in the armor of our understanding in what we think life is capable of.

This does not surprise me. Finding a bird that gives birth live young will.
