Tadpoles with hindlimbs 16 May 2010

Can you spot the tiny hind legs?

How about here ?

And here?
Tadpole's hindlegs are longer now and still consume cabbage but at a faster rate. Now, it has changed from a herbivorous to omnivorous. We threw in a dead tiny spider but tadpole doesn't fancy it.

Is kind of embarassing, but this is the first time I am seeing tadpoles with hindlegs, live.

At this time, the hindlegs grow at a rather fast rate. Can see difference in length (of the leg) every day.

Yeah! They change to frog pretty fast after the hind legs appear. The tail disappear in days after the front legs appear. One of our tadpoles had turned into frog =)

Under the Sky, what did you feed them with after their hindlegs appear? Shannon did such a great job at home, that i have trouble locating ants or insects. ai yo.

Ray - I think your friend is ill. :)
I don;t have a problem with frogs. But I do have a chronic case of abiniphobia.

I fed them frozen or defrost fish roe.
