These are our Rio Grande Leopard frog babies. I wonder if their momma is looking for them in our pool? Probably not. I suspect that the chlorine in the pool already damaged them and my research shows that even tap water can kill tadpoles. Can’t seem to find an answer about how long it takes exposure to chlorine to hurt them I don’t want to raise expectations about them growing into tadpoles and frogs if they are already doomed. Anyone out there know? In the meantime I will dechlorinate the water they are in and find them a bigger container ….
Thanks for visiting my blog
I'm glad you've found my garden journal. Perhaps the only thing greater than the satisfaction of nurturing a seed to a seedling to a blooming or producing plant is the joy of sharing nature's bounty with others. Whether I'm peddling garden tomatoes we can't possibly eat or sharing stories about why the verbena isn't doing well, my garden connects me. It connects me to the earth, to our wildlife friends, to fellow gardeners, and, to myself. So, welcome. I hope you'll feel connected here.
