My new 'baby'
We've been lucky this year in that some of our frogspawn have reached the froglet stage. I worry about the poor little things in case they get out of the pond as it's such a big leap for them to get back up there with it being a raised pond. I keep saying that I'm going to have to put another one in which is ground level and then I can put the spawn in there away from the fish! We know the fish must have been eating the tadpoles as they've been off their food :(
He's still got a little stump of a tail but it will soon be absorbed back into the body
If you look at a frog from the side you can see that they have beautiful golden eyes. Unfortunately he moved a fraction before I took the photo
small and perfectly formed
You can see how tiny he is on this photo, less than 1cm long
