Posted:Frog spawn is one of my best childhood memories. Used to always be heaps on the dam and road verge.
For many years though the family used so many poisons the frog numbers dimished but now no cropping and they are coming back.
Awesome biggrin

Posted:how do you tell the difference between toad spawn and frog spwan??
Apparnetly the tadpoles will start attacking the goldfish when they hatch, so we're gonna move them into a tank in the garden with some stones so they can get out and evrything.
OOoo i can't wait for baby frogs!

Posted:I love frogspown! I still spend way to much time resuing it from puddles and putting it in bigger ponds!

When I was little I used to keep it in a tank until they all hatched but once I forgot to feed then for a few days and they started eating each other. I started with about 50 little tadpoles and ended up with just one enormous tadpole! Remeber to feed them!

And if you put your finger in te tank they coma and munch off all the dead skin cells, it feels really weird and raspy. Maybe they should make it an exfoliation treatment ina spa and charge celebrities hundreds of pounds for it ubblol

Posted:I used to feed tadpoles on dog/cat food, just a little bit otherwise it makes the water go manky. And they like pond weed because a type of algae grows on it that they scrape off and eat. And failing that they just eat each other!

Interesting fact about frogs: Trout, pike and otters eat frogs but they only ever eat the back legs (like french people). Is the rest of the frog poisonous or something?
