Tadpole nursery

Post  okie alice on Thu Dec 15, 2011 11:12 am

Came home from the recent herp show with two Dendrobates tinctorius "Cobalt" tadpoles. First time I have raised tadpoles, unless you count the dadblasted bullfrog that laid eggs in my fishpond. I'm like a little kid on her first field trip to a pond. Someone has to restrain me when these herp shows come around, all my "no buying" resolutions go out the window. Maybe it's because the holiday spirit santa is all over town, I am also fostering a dog from The Bella Foundation. My zoo grows larger.

I've never got to see dart frog tadpoles; I bet they're cute! If that dadblasted bullfrog comes back this spring, I'd be happy to take a few tadoples off your hands.

One of the tadpoles, hatched 11/1/11, finally has achieved enough maturity to sit on my finger, breathing air and acting more like a frog. It still has a partial tail but I put it in a regular tank since his lungs are developed fully. The other tadpole is still quite a few days from this stage. It has been very interesting watching their progress.

I'm jealous. I've watched hundreds of native tadpoles grow but never a dart tadpole. AAhhh,
