It’s been an exciting morning for us in the Pabis household! We just checked on our tadpoles, and two of them have FRONT AND BACK legs!! This happened overnight because we looked at them yesterday. Two days ago I also took photos, and they had back legs then too. You can see those photos and the ones I took this morning below. I have put the dates on the photos for your reference.
We are still not completely sure what they are. They look so much like the fowler toads in our yard, but I think the toad’s cycle would be shorter. My guess is a Southern Chorus Frog. I’m going to send this to a couple of experts, and I’ll get back to you on that! (Update: After looking at some more photos in a book and online, we’re thinking they are fowler toads.)
