Heading into my 10pm meditation - and I have tadpoles!! Thank you Tina smile. And of course thank you Bob who carefully drove them home to me. Have you guys ever raised tadpoles?

Yes, Yes, YES! Lisa!

Growing up in England my grandmother who lived on the grounds of the Girls Grammar School where she worked as the Executive Chef, we were privy to be able to collect frog spawn from the pond on the grounds. My sister and I raised so many taddies into beautiful handsome frogs, you wouldn't believe. Once they matured, we transported them back to the school pond.

Those were awesome memories. We got to watch them grow their legs and observe them sit on the big pebbles we had collected from the beach when they were able and strong enough to do so, basking in the sunshine in our back yard. We reconstructed their habitat and they thrived...

I have to say something. I shop at an Asian fish market often where they sell practically anything fishy but also turtles and frogs - they sell these frogs from a large bucket all crowded in on top of each other..it's kinda sad. I told my husband they were so beautiful I wanted to buy one. He said, "let me guess, you wanted to save it and have another pet, right?" I just laughed. They were cute.

It goes make one consider being vegetarian, the more one grows to love these types of creatures. For now, I do my best to ensure at least the creature had a decent life.

Our tadpoles are enjoying their new home, especially the rock. They wriggle up to rest on it. They like romaine lettuce smile. We're still not sure what type of frog they'll grow into. I guess that's part of the fun! No legs yet.

So tiny smile

They look like they have longish tails - their leg bumps should be showing soon.

Here's a video of my cute little tadpoles. You can see the tiny back legs emerging on a few of the larger ones -

Bob's been worried about the two tiny tadpoles getting eaten so he made a "nursery" for them to be safer in smile.

Oh My Goodness!

That was so amusing. Some of the taddies are huge...and they are starting to make a mess in the bottom of the tank I see. They are very healthy and active...awesome Lisa and Bob!

A new tadpole video! This one has tadpoles basking on a rock, enjoying the shallow water there. You can also see how they breathe, letting out air bubbles at the surface.

The little tadpole has figured out how to bask on her new float! Hurrah! Technically it's a turtle float. She's in the lower left of the photo. And, no, I'm not actually sure it's a "she" smile.

We've moved those three littlest tadpoles into a larger tank in hopes they will start to grow a bit.

Our tadpoles are definitely growing! Hopefully we'll be able to identify what type of frog they are soon smile #tadpole I think this is "Fred".

Here's the video I just took of the froglet that's growing arms - so far it just has one, apparently -

The tadpole's second arm has popped out to its proper location! Too cool! It wasn't out just a few hours ago! #frog I apologize for the picture being a bit fuzzy but he's swimming all over in glee, now that he has all his arms out. None of the other tadpoles have any arms at all - and half don't have legs yet. We have a Two Armed Tadpole - or, more properly, a froglet!

I can see the review for the fish tank filter now. "While it might filter water, its main purpose is to be the Perfect sleep area for tadpoles."

AWESOME! Another tadpole has gotten one arm in the past hour and will have his second in mere minutes! #tadpole #frog Look near his head. You can see his right arm with three fingers (he will develop the fourth in a few days). Now look at the left side of his body (the part facing you). See the impression of three fingers in there? That is the fully formed arm beneath the skin, ready to come out! They press out elbow first through an opening in the skin. I bet it'll be out by the time I go back to look again!

Fred the Frog nuzzles with two of the tadpoles. "It's OK. You'll have real legs soon and, maybe someday, even arms."
