Click here to see photos from the day our tadpole arrived. We'll be adding more photos to that webpage over time as the tadpoles mature.
The tadpoles are used to their new habitat. They are very calm. All of them now have arms and legs (even though some tadpoles have super small legs).The tadpoles look like frogs when they are viewed from the back. The tadpoles’ legs have clear skin attached to their tadpole toes and they flap their legs like propellers and that makes them go faster.
In class 344, African Clawed Frogs are the 344 new pets. They came all the way from Florida! They got to New York in a box. We expected two, but there were 4!
The tadpoles have arrived! There were four tadpoles, although we only order two tadpoles. You can see through them. I saw their hearts and they were pale green. Their hearts are silver-colored, and you could see them beating. When they are scared, they play dead. Otherwise, they swim around. We aren't allowed to touch them because we might harm them. I like them.
Ben: We just got our tadpoles today! They were as clear as glass. They came at lunchtime, and we were SO excited! Their hearts are golden. The tadpoles get used to the water in 75 hours. So, that would be from Friday to Monday.
George: The tadpoles came on Thursday from Florida. There were 4 tadpoles in the box. We were only expecting 2 tadpoles, but we got 4. We were shocked!! The tadpoles will grow up to be African Clawed Frogs. They are weird looking. I am very excited!
