Sebuah hujan ikan tercatat di Singapura pada 1861, saat selama tiga hari hujan berturut-turut, sejumlah ikan ditemukan di genangan-genangan air
Hujan ular, 1680.

Hujan hewan adalah sebuah fenomena meteorologi langka dimana hewan-hewan tak terbang jatuh dari langit. Kejadian-kejadian semacam itu dilaporkan di banyak negara sepanjang sejarah.[1] Salah satu hipotesis menyatakan bahwa sengkayan tornadik terkadang mengangkat hewan-hewan seperti ikan atau katak, dan membawa mereka dalam jarak beberapa mil.[1][2] Namun, aspek fenomena tersebut tak pernah disaksikan oleh para ilmuwan.[3]
