Some boys love frogs, tadpoles, lizards, spiders, snakes. My Sweetie was one of those boys - and seems he still is!
So, when cleaning and opening the above ground pool in the back, he found these little tadpoles, he had to bring them inside and raise them. We have, over the course of 2 days, 23 tadpoles in a small aquarium on the kitchen table. He feeds them fish flakes, dropping water on top of the flakes to push them to the bottom so they can feed without coming up out of the water (although some are okay with this). They have grown a lot since he brought them in and I'm looking forward to seeing the tail disappear and for them to begin to look more like little froggies :) These are tree frogs and we'd been hearing them croaking and calling for mates for weeks during the nights - looks like the males were successful in finding females so they can carry on the next generation.
But what does one do with 23 frogs, assuming they all make it? ha ha
Now sing it with me:
Froggie went a'courting, he did ride,
