Compare this from Gerald of Wales writing about his home country:
> In our time, a young man, native of this country, during a severe
> illness, suffered as violent a persecution from toads,119 as if the
> reptiles of the whole province had come to him by agreement; and
> though destroyed by his nurses and friends, they increased again on
> all sides in infinite numbers, like hydras' heads. His attendants,
> both friends and strangers, being wearied out, he was drawn up in a
> kind of bag, into a high tree, stripped of its leaves, and shred;
> nor was he there secure from his venomous enemies, for they crept up
> the tree in great numbers, and consumed him even to the very bones.
