Thank you! It's nice to hear another story like ours and know that all was well in the end. I'm keeping an eye on him/her and all seems fine so far. Eating well and swiming about without a care. Tiny is a very active taddie, likes jumping up out of the water and splashing about alot. Seems anxious to get up on land too. I've watched him/her swim real fast and get up between the rocks near the land then wiggle around and back into the water. It's using those back legs like crazy too. I can only imagine what it'll be like once morphed. Very spunky lil bugger. I'll take that as a good sign.


: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!!!
