TADPOLE TALES: The Tadpole Days



Welcome back to Tadpole Tales! 

Leg-a-less continues his metamorphosis into a frog. This week, his body has changed shape again. His tail continues to grow more solid and shorter. His mouth is fully formed and fully functional. He devours the dried meal worms and small pieces of lettuce we feed him daily. But his biggest growth this week has been in his legs. We noticed just yesterday that a small, webbed foot has formed on the end of his leg!

  • Body continues to change shape 
  • Tail is continuing to shorten
