Spawn of the Pond

Last week I talked about bringing 3 tadpoles into the house as a mini-science lesson for the boys.  Those tadpoles spent the weekend in a glass mixing bowl while all of our visitors were here.  They swam around, eating fish food and leaving plenty of algae-green-colored droppings.  You could see visible changes in their eyes and by the end of the weekend, the telltale legs had sprouted on the two largest ones.

On Monday I went to the local pet store and picked up a medium-sized "Critter Carrier" and set up some rocks on one end.  This will be an area for the tadpoles to start hanging out once they figure out what to do with their legs :-)

You can see one of the tadpoles in the center foreground, and there's one in the center of the pack of the tank.

In other pond news, I got some good pictures of what I assume is the tadpoles' mother:

This son-of-a-gun is LOUD at night.  My condolences to all our houseguests who have to sleep in Jacob's bedroom whose window is right next to this pond.


And the fish in the pond seem happy.  Unlike the two sets of koi we had, these folks come crowding over when I stand nearby, they know where their food is coming from, ha ha!
