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.
Two days after getting introduced to our new tadpoles we observed some things. Here are the things we observed.
Our tadpoles have transparent skin on the outside of their body. If you look closely you will see their clear skin puffing up when they swim really fast and you might see their heart pumping. Most tadpoles like to "play dead" in the water. Usually when they are scared they do this. You might see them digging the gravel.
That same day we got our two African- Clawed Tadpoles. You might see something golden which is their heart. One day one of the tadpoles finally discovered the tunnel in their "mansion like" tank and they were hiding in it.
These were some behaviors of our amazing Bufo Americanus and African- Clawed Frog tadpoles.
Bufo Americanus and African Clawed Frogs have some differences, and we will tell you them.
WHO WILL WIN
Two more tadpoles?!? Okay, let me be clear, so we already have five tadpoles and we just got two more? WOW, I already feel like a mom! Anyways, the tadpoles have a huge size difference in basically everything. The African Clawed Frog tadpoles are way bigger than the Bufo Americanus toad tadpoles. Also their tanks are so different! The African Clawed Frogs' house is way bigger than the Bufo Americanus house. The African Clawed Frogs' house is like a Frog Mansion!
Back to the Bufo Americanus now. Once we got our African Clawed Frogs, basically everyone lost interest with our American Toad tadpoles :(.
I've noticed a lot about our Bufo Americanus tadpoles these past few days. Even though they are nocturnal, there is always a tadpole awake and swimming. But I don't really care because I am so grateful that we even have tadpoles unlike other classes! THANK YOU MRS.ZIMMERMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
