Mucks Pond Update!

Well it's been a couple of months since we first started building my daughters pond.  I have to say that I think I spend more time enjoying it than she does though.  We had some issues with getting the frogs she was catching from the natural pond down the road, they would hear their friends and eventually hop on back to the natural pond. Some times they would stay for a couple of weeks but they eventually hopped on back. So, we decided to try something different.  We went to a river we know that is full of the 1/2 tadpole 1/2 frog babies.  We figured if they started as babies they would stay, and they have, below you will see the frogs my daughter has been raising.  They started out as huge tadpoles with tails and tiny legs just starting to grow, and now they are happy little frogs in her pond.  If you look closely to the last picture, the first frog has a bump where the tail has just fallen off.  We have one or two babies left that are still more tadpole that frog, you see them swimming around the bottom of the pond if you watch closely.
