Froglets: 7 1/2 weeks

The photo above is from Sunday. The photo below is of the same froglet on Tuesday. What a difference 2 days made!!!

On Tuesday, we went ahead and made the froglets a terrarium. We added gravel with one side deeper and then added water in the whole tank. We also gave them their first "grown up" food - crickets. The largest froglet (above on left) has been trying to catch one, but I don't think he's gotten one yet. We will also try mealworms soon.

These are Leopard Frogs (rana pipiens). I think our largest one is about 1.5 inches. They normally grow to about 3 inches long. I read that they can live to be 5 years old, but you are "doing good" if they survive a year. So far, we've made it almost 2 months!
