Tadpole Update

The batch of tadpole eggs from June is still producing frogs. I must have missed the lesson in school that the rate they mature varies wildly. Since it's now fall in Colorado & since the night temps are expected to drop below freezing this week, I setup a small indoor tank to rescue 12 slow growers and provide a fun learning experience for the family (plus, I'm a sucker for critters in need).

I'll release them into a local natural pond (their native habitat) when it's warm -- let's just hope the family enjoys the charming sound of their nightly serenades in the meantime.
