Tadpole Update

Can't remember how long we've had these lil'guys... At least 6 weeks?

9 hatched and grew from teeny tiny to kinda-gross-big. Two died while we were off adventuring last week. We lost another within an hour of getting them home. Seems they are most vulnerable (for us) at the almost full frog stage.

I've been most astounded by the varying rates of individual development since they all hatched within 24 hours of each other.

Some still full on tadpoles

Hey! You look like a frog!!


Caterpillars and ladybug larvae arrived yesterday. We usually raise them once a year. Might do it twice this summer just because I love watching them.
