    Pacific Treefrog: From Tadpole to Frog

    There's not much in AC about frogs and tadpoles, but I got some.

    Earlier today, I went to a pond out by a school were I would usually go to look at the wildlife, but today, I took a net, and an empty salsa jar and caught about 20 frog eggs. I'm pretty sure that these are the native Pacific Treefrogs, because they lay eggs in mid to late February. I used to have Pacific Treefrogs when I was 8 or 9 in a 10 gallon aquarium outside and they lasted for about 2-3 years until I lost interest in them and let them go. (Since they were a native species) But now, I have interest in them again and got some.

    So here are the spawn now in a salsa jar:










    BTW I'll be moving them to a ten gallon tank in my garage Tommorow morning (But should I move it to my Garage, or outside where they can get some sunlight, because it feels like spring here in Oregon.)

    Good thread.
    Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase!
    Storm clouds may gather,
    And stars may collide,
    But I will love you until the end of time!

    The eggs don't look so good, If they don't hatch, I will go down to the pond again in a few weeks to find swimming tadpoles and bring them home. And I am just starting to decorate the tank. (The chlorine had to evaporate)

    UPDATE: It turns out that they all died and never hatched because it looks like mold has covered the eggs. Yo can unsticky if you want. But I will be back with more of them in about 3 weeks but this time, I will bring back tadpoles.

    I got some bullfrog eggs while I was camping in central Oregon and instead of being put in a salsa jar, I put them in a tupperware container and when I got home, I immediately put them in the 10G in my backyard. And now, we have made some progress because when I pick up the eggs, they twitch!

    The eggs look like embryoes in a C-shaped position and the water tempertature is about 76'F.

    I will post pictures in a little bit.
