Operation: Ribbit Part Two

Eggy seems to be doing fine in his new environment, called the Tad-pool.  Eggy seems to be turning gray, which I believe is part of his metamorphosis.  Just in case you don’t know, metamorphosis is exactly like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.  But a frog doesn’t have a chrysalis or have to eat leaves.  A frog starts out as some eggs that look like eyeballs in a small pond.  When the eggs hatch, little tadpoles come out that are just about, I believe, an inch long.  The tadpoles can grow bigger until they can be, say, three inches long.  Then their front arms sprout and then their tail starts growing in.  Then, after the tail has disappeared, its back legs sprout and it has completed its metamorphosis.  The frog will grow bigger and bigger until they are ready to live on land. 

 Here’s a picture of Eggy in the Tad-pool.  This picture was taken just today.  Eggy is at the bottom.

    Thanks for the reply in the other entry on Eggy, and this great update! Eggy is quite fetching and I hope you do teach him some tricks– that would be amazing (I think!)

    I am enjoying your blog a great deal!

    Dear crt,

    It says on the box that you can teach Eggy tricks but maybe that’s just some cooky advertising.

    Anyway, if it isn’t, it would be really cool if I could. I think we have to do that when he’s a fully grown frog, because he isn’t right now.
