Rescued from a Puddle

by Katrina
(Birmingham, Alabama, USA)

Tree frogs lay eggs in a puddle that forms in front of my house when it rains a lot. I can go out there just about anytime and find thousands of tadpoles. This year I decided to rescue them when the puddle dried up. I raised two of them to frogs. I gave the rest of the tadpoles to my neighbors kids and they still have them as far as I know. My tree frogs are about 2 months old and I have started feeding them small crickets as opposed to fruit flies. I didn't think they were big enough to eat the crickets but tonight, I witnessed both of them attack and eat them with no problems. They have a nice little habitat but they will need more room as they grow so I'm looking for a bigger space for them.


I did all of this because as child I never got to see a tadpole turn into a frog. That was my original goal but then I didn't want to set them free only for them to possibly die. So, I kept them. They were raised in captivity from tadpole stage so they don't know any different. They seem happy and healthy and I am enjoying them very much. I have studied so much about them and how to care for them and it has been a great experience.
