So after a few weeks my tadpoles have started showing leg growth. And today when I went to feed them the largest one had all four legs! S/he has a tail still but it’s all so exciting to see how they change

I couldn’t get a picture of the other two but here are the ones that weren’t hiding

The last time I saw tadpoles with legs was back in the early 70s. No frogs left here now thanks to herbicide spraying and land clearing for housing.

That's great to hear @Lemon!! How long does it take for them to turn into frogs?

Thats not long at all! Super cool!
Feels like forever though when you’re watching them every day lol. I was able to give most of them away to friends . But I kept four because I am technically able to fit three more toads into my terrarium and I need a back up just in case 😅

Peacock gudgeons take 4-5 MONTHS... So, forever is a relative term 😉😅
