I should ad that my work is not just for fun but legitimate research that may eventually lead to helping explain the decling frog populations and provide info on how to best raise tadpoles with minimal mortality rate. One expiriment I did a while ago involved about 500 tadpole, only 2 individual tadpoles died. Then I did another with leopard frogs and it had a mortality rate of something like 80-90%. These are just some of the problems I hope to explain.
