Our frog had a heart attack or that is what we think. There is a mystery to the frog but we named him... Heart Attack! If the next died and if we find thei who killed ... is in trouble. BY Vikram and Eli
Hi, my name is Sky. Today I will tell you the tadpole basics on how to take care of it and some habitat information.
Here are some basic steps for taking care of the tadpoles. The tadpoles can go up to 3 days without food! Those little creatures... magnificent... Well anyways... the food that they eat is different depending on their age. The tadpoles are herbivores but, when they are actual frogs, they are mostly carnivores. The type of water that you need to survive is either spring water, or tap water (filtered). You should change it when it is getting a bit dirty, kind of cloudy. If the water goes cloudy then you would want to change the water more often or, if the water stays pretty clean then you could change it less. The average basis is changing the water 2 times a week (or more).
Boy, taking care of 5 tadpoles is very hard work.... I mean you think that is a lot of work, but that's only like 1/4 of the process.... Anyway, the next part is you need to put in first is some ground. Gravel or dirt is recommended.
Hi this is Devon and Sky reporting live from Toads Life! Today we got what we have wanted for about a month! We got toads! That's exiting. The Bufo Americanus have became just about toads. But, the African Clawed Frogs tadpoles didn't yet become frogs. It's so amazing that the Bufo Americanus can climb the rocks all by themselves!
Again as I said they're just about turning into toads. They still have to grow more and shorten their tails. Since they're growing into toads, we had to lower the water level and add some rocks. But they really smell! Soon we will only need a plate of water in they're tank. They look exactly the same except one is larger than the other. They kind-of look like mini black frogs! (If you look closely). But they're so cute!
They're having a mini rock climbing competition! One even jumped to another rock! We're going to need a bigger habitat soon! Sadly one of the toads drowned :( because since they are toads, now they no longer breathe water, so we had to take out all of the water. Sadly, once again we now only have one Bufo Americanus. Boy, is it sure hard to take care of those little critters! Since now they are toads they don't eat the food provided with the toad packet, they now eat tiny bugs (ants) that we collect from outside. Many people try to collect the ants but, some don't bother. That's it for this Toads Life!
Today or frogs became air breathing. Sadly one of the frogs drown because it went off the rock and into the water. But the frog that is alive is doing very well. He seems to love the rocks. He always goes on the rocks and in to the shade. Eli and Vikram took out the water so he can be cozy anywhere in the cage. Now or frog will hopefully live.

Hey 3-344 we have some more SAD-SAD-SAD news 2 tadpoles died. I took them both out of the the tank.We think they did not have air and land so now we have land for them so they hop out of the water whenever they like to.We noticed some little creatures in their tank.
Finally our tadpoles got legs!! They will become frog men or women....I wonder what they will look like? Maybe they will look like the frogs down low? Hopefully when our frogs are frogs and are living in the wild they will live for about 40 years...or more.
THE TOADS HAVE LEGS! 2 of the toads have legs. they have the same legs just different toads. they are young but the 2 without legs are younger than the two with legs and this is what a bufo americanus tadpole with legs
YAY!!!! One of our African Clawed Frogs just discovered the other side of the tank! They might want their own rooms or maybe one of them is scared of the other side because it cant see the other tadpole? The tadpole that discovered the other side should be rewarded for using its smarts!!
Hey 3-344 we have some sad news: 1 of our American Toads just died this weekend (May 3rd and 4th ). I never saw it when it was dead and I'm glad about that because if I saw it, I'd be like, "Nooooo!" But if our tadpoles were in the wild and one was weak and didn't eat enough food it would still die. So it wasn't our fault. So we had to change the water a little (like last time) just in case so the others don't get sick and die. But the good news is that the remaining 4 have grown bigger! You can even sort of see their legs forming now right behind their stomach. It's so small you can't even see it really. It's just like little bumps where the legs will be. So let's hope for good luck so the remaining four tadpoles don't die!
Hey there, folks! This is Natalia reporting live from Mrs. Zimmerman's Third Grade classroom. Sadly, one of our dear Bufo Americanus passed away over the weekend. So, our brave volunteers (Gabi and I) bravely decided to take the dead one out of the tank and carefully dispose it. Also, we did a quick life test, to make sure all of the other tadpoles were alive. Then we changed their water and fed them. Back to you Gabi!
Thanks again Natalia! On the other hand, we have the African-Clawed Frog tadpoles. The intelligent one finally discovered the tube! All that extra money was finally not wasted! We also changed their water and fed them. Over the past few days, we have noticed that they grown so much! Their tails have gotten so much longer and they are remarkably transparent while the Bufo Americanus are opaque.
See you next time on channel 344, Frog Update.
