Out of 20 tadpoles we now have 3 baby froglets TOTAL ..there was 6.
Today I saw one of them very active in the water...what I haven't seen is them eat. I've provided lots of choices...even more since the 3 died, and I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I can to help them live. I just did a 1/2 water change, and was considering moving the 3 to their own "home", but I'm afraid there to fragile.....Any advice would be appreciated. Fingers Crossed....

Don't be concerned about them not eating for a while directly after morphing ....they can be sustained by the "dissolved" tail for a bit. When they begin eating you must provide them with very small live food, such as pinhead crickets, tiny mealworms, etc. You must also have an area for them to get out of the water or they will quickly drown......depending upon the type of froglet, some may never return to water other than to breed or soak. I've had some experience with wood frog tadpoles and I can say from observations that morphing has to be a particularly trying time for them. Some succeed only to die shortly thereafter for no apparent reason that I can learn.


Pacific Chorus frogs,
A lizard or two,
Rana Sylvatica (hundreds),
... and a pair of raccoon.

Thanks Phineas. One seems to be growing really well. Keeping a close eye on them...
