:Our one taddie (Tiny, nexy to grow front legs) has this funky kink in it's tail that has only shown up in the last day. Is this a sign of a problem or just they way it's growing? Tiny eat real well and is very active so nothing there has changed.
Last yr. we brought home a Wood Frog tadpole that had the same problem, or so I thought. There's this huge plant pond nursery not so far away that actually lets kids take a tadpole home when you're purchasing something. Well, we found "Kinky" (sorry, I didn't name him)and took him home just for observation. I swear that tail was in the shape of an "S". He ate fine and when he lost that tail he was good to go back to his home pond. He never seemed skinny or lethargic, but then again I didn't have him checked for parasites either. Hey, I was just happy that my kids were able to let go of him and pretty much understand that he should stay in the place where we found him. If there EVER was a perfect place for frogs, that place was it!!!
