Tadpole Rescue

Today we performed a tadpole rescue.  Apparently some frogs thought this puddle looked good for offspring, but now it is drying up.  These tadpoles are not quite at hopping away stage yet so are going to perish.  We have begun gradually bucketing them out of the puddle and moving them to a more permanent body of water.  I know we are interfering with natural selection but I am a woose (sp?).  Plus the puddle is only there because of us so I feel responsible.

    It’s “wuss” (rhymes with puss). I’m with you, though – I couldn’t stand by and watch them dry up…

    Those frogs will eat some annoying bugs to pay you back – win, win situation.

    I’d be right there with you! I’m sure they do appreciate being given a new lease on life.

      They did not like being picked out of their puddle but swam happily away when they got to larger water. Hopefully they live to appreciate it.
