Brhino and Daughter's Frog Adventure
NOTE: The tadpoles (and later frogs) described in the following journal were claimed to be leopard frog tadpoles by the seller, and for the first many pages of this journal they are referred to as such. However, as I later learned, these are actually bullfrogs.
For my daughter's 4th birthday, some relatives decided to get her a tadpole kit. I'm less then enthused about the unsolicited pet, but with that said we're going to do what we can to take great care of them! This journal will chronicle our adventures in frog-keeping.
We were supposedly getting two tadpoles, but three arrived. They come with a little 2 gallon plastic enclosure...
...that's cracked at the top. Fantastic. So, we've only got it 75% filled. It's not going to be their home for very long, anyhow.
Here's one of the tadpoles, distorted a little because of the bend in the corner of the acrylic.
My daughter has named the three tadpoles. They are named Brulia, Dulia, and Lulia. I'm not sure on the spelling.
In the next few posts I'll talk about the research I've done on leopard frogs and my future plans for them.
