Remember we found frog eggs back in May? We enjoyed the tadpoles from them all summer. When it got cold outside, they still hadn't turned into frogs, so we brought them in off the balcony. Yesterday our first little frog crawled out of the water! It's been sitting on the rock, eating tiny little bugs and entertaining us since then. When we first saw it on dry land, it still had a long tail; already today there's just a tiny stump. It's amazing how from the same batch of eggs we have a frog, an almost-frog, a tadpole with little legs, and a plain tadpole right now. I wonder why they're developing at such different rates?
