Eggs to tadpoles to toads in less than 6 weeks

15 May

Most of the toad tadpoles that were laid April 4 are still tadpoles but a couple that are in a heated aquarium have completely changed (see, I avoided spelling metamorphisized or somethin like that) into tiny little toads.
I put them outside because there is no way I can provide live insects to such small creatures. I am sure their mortality rate is still very high but at least they have made it this far, so good luck little dudes!

    I love toads so much! I rescued a slew of them from a pet shop that didn’t know what they had, and I was able to keep them for several years. Maybe one day, I’ll get the chance again!

    OH MY GOD IT’S SO ADORABLE!! The toad I have is bigger (about half a thumb) I hope I can have little baby toads some day.
