Tad Files

So in May of 2008, we got a tadpole - from the Grow-a-Frog company! - whom we named Tad - not knowing if it was a boy or a girl! Tad has remained Tad and he is in fact a boy African Clawed Frog.  A short period later, I ordered a habitat for him not knowing that it came with a live froglet.  We named the froglet - Lily, also not knowing if she was a boy or a girl!  Well low and behold she was a girl!

Fastforward 3.5 yrs, Tad and Lily have mated a couple times, but did not produce offspring.  This past week however was another story.  2 tadpoles survived.  Here is one of them!
(the little line, slightly off center - a 3 hour old tadpole)
They are now 2 days old, and not much bigger, but thriving.
