Tadpoles: 7 weeks

Our largest tadpole had one front leg yesterday morning! By the end of the day, he had both front legs. He's really starting to look like a frog now! His body (not including the tail) is about 2/3rds the size of a Pink Pearl eraser.
Our last tadpole got his 2nd hind foot today. His tail is very crooked and now he's having trouble swimming. He seems to be getting food OK, though. I'll keep a close eye on him.

It's neat hearing about these tadpoles. I like seeing the pix. Has it been an expensive project and where did you find the kid, if it is one?

Dana, you should probably put a slanted rock in the habitat now. That way when they decide they want to use those new legs, they'll have somewhere to go. Isn't it a fascinating process?
