Tadpole Rescue

A couple of weeks ago, we were called on to rescue a bunch of newly laid frog eggs. A storm the night before had filled the cistern to the brim and some crazy frog laid a bunch of eggs. If we had any more rain, the eggs would wash right over the edge and be gone. So we fished them out with a net and relocated them to one of our 20 gallon buckets. Here we are two weeks later and we have what must be 100 tadpoles growing up fast. In the second picture, I threw in some fish food to offer some nutrition and some plants to offer cover.
