    Nice! How soon 'til you can tell if they're fertile?

    Ya know, I'm not exactly sure. I'd guess sometime within a week.

    Are you going to let Mary Jane name them? If they are fertile?

    No. Because if they're all named Carl, they won't come when I call em.

    Aren't frogs promiscuous? Maybe you could call them by their last name.

    Oh Jon. You're a boy. Boys don't have eggs.

    The eggs crapped out on me. :( That's ok, though. I'm pretty sure my vanzolinis are making babies somewhere in their viv. They're always calling and climbing all over the broms.

    Yup. They're commonly referred to as thumbnail frogs.

    Ok. So here are some pics I took today. I'm not very familiar with shooting moving subjects (i.e. tadpole & frog), so I set the camera to automatic everything in "sport mode". ISO was 1600 for most of these pics, so there's a lot of noise. I'll try different modes some other time and see what works best for me.

    Too cool! How long til that lil tadpole starts growing legs? I can't believe he can survive in such a small amount of water.

    Oh, probably sometime in the next couple of weeks, I'll see legs. Give it another month or two, and I'll have a new frog!

    What flavor frogs do you have? I take it you haven't heard any calling yet...?
