Thumbs up Fowler's Toads: From Tadpole to Toadlet.

This was brought up in a previous post of mine and as promised I have come up with a timeline of sorts with pictures of my experience raising Fowler's Toad tadpoles. These tads were rescued from a collection of rain water in a pool cover. The cover was going to be taken off and I couldn't stand to see every last one of the tadpoles die. Specially because the amphibian population of Long Island has been declining.

Any questions or friendly comments are welcome. Enjoy

How cute! Are you going to keep them or release them?

I plan on releasing them in a reserve behind my parents house once they get a little bit bigger.
