Breakfast to go...



One of our tadpoles is now a fully formed toad. R did some research and found (now that we have a more easily identifiable toad, versus just tadpoles) that our tadpoles are spadefoot toad babies.

We had to figure out what to feed them, since we guessed goldfish food probably wouldn't be the right food for toads. Once again, R did more research (this time at Petsmart, where she knows virtually all the employees by name, and they know her!) and learned that fruit flies would make a good diet for our newly emerged little toad.

I couldn't believe R was telling me to pay real money for flies I'm usually trying to get rid of...



...but I did.

Our little toad (as yet unnamed) seems to be eating them...

... when they aren't riding around on his back!
