WEEKEND FROGGIE UPDATE

Well, you all know that we have 7 little froglets hopping and eating and looking so cute you want to wear them as jewelry!  And then there was Pokey - the last of the tadpoles who seemed unable to turn.  He had air in his belly and floated on his back and looked miserable.  We were sure he wasn't going to make it.



BUT HE DID!!!


The air bubble went away, he turned right side up and began sprouting little tiny back legs.  He's going to make it :)

I guess there has to be a pokey in every bunch, right?



Maybe he just liked having all that space in the large container with water all to himself?



We haven't released any more of the froglets.  Sweetie wants to keep them and try to photograph them with a friend who will come over next week.  We will have to release them before he begins to get too cold, though, so they all make it.  If he gets any good photos, I'll share those so you see the full journey of these little ones.

I'm so glad he made it. I guess he's like the runt of the litter. I hope you post those photos please. :)

The runts are the toughest sometimes. Its survival skill at its finest.

Glad he/she made it and they'll all find their freedom once they've become photogenic targets. :)
