TADPOLE TALES: The Tadpole Days


Welcome back to Tadpole Tales! 

Leg-a-less has been busy growing and shrinking. Wait a minute! How can that be? It's true. His tail is shrinking, but he is growing into a more frog-like body. We're noticing his metamorphosis seems to be using up the bulk of his energy. He's spending a lot more time hanging out at the bottom of the tank rather than swimming all around. And he continues to swim to the top every half hour to take a breath. 


TADPOLE TIDBITS:
  • Body is more elongated 
  • Back legs are becoming longer and more pronounced
  • Gills are shrinking
  • Tail is becoming shorter
