Feeding Your Pet Frog

Frogs can become your child’s best of friend and they are perfect as a pet, especially for beginners. However, it is better if you will choose frogs that are grown in captivity, because there are some species of frogs that are considered endangered and there are some that are dangerous as pets for kids. 466 more words

tadpole exchange update

Ash got some tadpoles from my friend’s pool that was due to be cleaned and chlorinated. They are motorbike frogs (Litoria moorei). The pool owner worked hard to make sure all the tadpoles were rehomed. 161 more words

a tale of two frogs

The new tadpoles are happily chewing through the algae in my pond and the water is slowly turning crystal clear. After a couple of days their pale colour darkened and they blend in well with the murky water. 637 more words

Never Can Tell

A man with an axe and a girl, a forest ranger and his daughter, he seems focused on the axe, she’s looking on in that polite but hanging-back-in-your-mind way that kids look on when adults are making you look at something and never telling you why they want you to or why you have to sit there and be still until whatever it is they’re not really explaining to you is over, I just came out here because Mama wants me to ask if he wants coffee in a thermos, those tadpoles down in the creek yesterday hope they’re still there wonder if they’re frogs yet, maybe he’s working his way around to saying something about me scaring the bejesus out of Yaya last night, really shouldn’t have done that, wood feels good on my feet, warm, smooth, why is he all closed up over that thing like he’s glued to it or like it might fly off on its own if he doesn’t wrangle it down or something? 538 more words
