Okay... just one more update to this thread.

While at first the tadpoles looked like Little Grass Frogs, now that they are fully out of the water they look more like our standard Green Treefrogs. I can also tell that most of them are doomed...DOOMED I say! if they stay in my yard...these pics are from the fig tree which overhangs the two main water gardens where the tadpoles are emerging:

LOL any idea what kind of snake that is? It doesn't look like one that has a fancy for frogs though. If you have resident garter snakes on the other hand...


I bet some of these frogs will be coming to visit your porchlights for bugs soon Smile

Dang sometimes I wish I lived in FL!
