TADPOLE TALES: The Tadpole Days



Welcome back to Tadpole Tales!

BIG NEWS! Leg-a-less has outgrown his name. I think we should rename him...Leg-a-LOTS! 


This week, Leg-a-LOTS grew front legs! His back legs have formed a joint in the middle (like a knee) so he is able to bend it push off when he swims. He continues to enjoy hiding behind the rock in the tank. The rock, that sits above the surface of the water, will give Leg-a-LOTS a place to rest outside the water once he's primarily using his lungs to breathe. 


TADPOLE TIDBITS:
  • Back legs have formed a joint in the middle (like a knee) 
  • Front legs have formed 
  • Very active, using new legs to push off the bottom of the tank and around rocks in the tank
  • Rising to surface every 1-3 minutes to take a breath
  • Eating meal worms and small pieces of lettuce
  • Tail continues to shrink
