Tadpole Diary: The Timeline

May 9, 2008 at 2:53 pm 2 comments

May 9 2008: I decided it would be useful to put up a rough timeline of important dates that this diary spans. It’s not very long but would save tralling through almost 20 posts to find the information you want.

Day 1: Collecting the frogspawn.
Day 4: The frogspawn fully hatched into tadpoles.
Day 7: The peak of their growth spurt.
Day 29: They began to grow legs.
Day 53: The first two tadpoles turned into frogs.
Day 59: They were released back into the wild.

    aw I’m a kid again with my jam jar and net, I once caught a lizard that I was sure was “foreign” because of it’s shape but it turned out to be an expectant mum, and prouced 6 of the tiniest lizards you ever saw. I’ve got a froggy page you might find interesting. love Suz
