There seem to be many DGers who love frogs, toads and other amphibians.
For those on dial-up, perhaps a new thread is in order. And what better way
to spread the good word about frogs and toads? :-)
Post your hoppity little darlings here, please?
For the love of amphibians!
Beahive -- if I could be reincarnated, I'd want to be a frog lucky enough to live in your pond. They all looks so happy and healthy, and are so very photogenic!
This may be a silly question, but what happens to a tadpole's tail once they get their legs? Does it shrivel up and "get sucked into it's body", does it fall off? I just thought about that looking at your last picture.
It gets hidden away in their body.They will have a little nub once they are old enough to go on land and it finally just becomes a bum!
You always have the bestest frog pics, Bea. Your frogs are supermodels! :)
I hope to write a book one day using their photos or maybe just a coffee table book of photo's. Will see what the future brings.
Heehee. Water Hyacinth makes a great parasol! Great photos as always, Bea. :)
I'm an urban gardener who has set up a pond, not still water. Has a "bubbler" and next year a waterfall. I want frogs & toads but haven't a clue where to obtain "starters". I do not want to remove them from their wildlife habitat. Is there an online source for these critters?
I purchased bullfrog tadpoles from my local nursery, but we also had 3 bullfrogs just show up one day last summer, and they returned again this year. You know the expression -- if you build it, they will come! :)
Good Gosh, Im gonna have to start packing a camera around outside with me.. Mine all roam free. lol.. Hop Hop Here and and a Hop HOP there, they are everywhere at times.. And at night the bayou is full of song.. Hmm I do have one picture I took last year, I will have to search for it.. It was so cute.. He just sitting in a rain pipe.. I guess he lives in there???
