So – we’ve been given 60 or so pet tadpoles! They started as little black dots, inside some nasty slimy stuff, and now they’re starting to wriggle about in it a bit. They don’t seem to mind being locked inside this giant mass of jelly, but I expect one day it will get old for them and they’ll swim right out. I find myself staring at them for ages, watching them grow is absolutely amazing. They have been designed so perfectly – I’m pretty sure I’m enjoying them more than the kids!
So they’re going to hang out at our place for a month or so, then when they’re actually frogs they’ll be sent back to the river. Because, honestly, who needs 60 frogs hopping around the place?
