In early April, the kids scored a couple dozen frog eggs and we have been watching them transform before our eyes. Everyone in the family has enjoyed monitoring the changes every day. I thought I would share the changes that we have observed this month.
I made the mistake of bringing the eggs indoor and so they hatched very quickly. Should I do this again I will leave the eggs outside so they don't hatch so quickly.
Very tiny. Only 3 eggs did not hatched.
We counted 23 tadpoles. We feed them baby fish food.
Can you see the tiny back legs:)
Front legs now seen!
Beginning to look like a miniature frog. It was amazing to see that every tadpole had a different growth schedule. Next to the rock is a tadpole still with a long tail and only back legs.
Starting to climb up the bucket and trying to escape time to plan their release to the wild.
My husband and daughter prepared a mini frog habitat in our garden you can see the full post here, if you missed it:).
The kids released the tiny frogs into the miniature habitat.
It has been several days and we are continuing to check on the frogs progress.
Our neighbor requested a few frogs to add to her backyard pond and since we had so many we were glad to share.
Now I am waiting for the frogs to grow big enough to help with the slug and snail problem in our garden.
