The woman, wearing calf-high rubber boots, jeans, and a baseball cap, was carrying two plastic bags. Inside were plastic containers full of tadpoles. We had very little rain this year, and the puddles where she found them were drying up so she was on a rescue mission. I live on a creek, have a pond, and am--you know--nuts about animals.
There are now tadpoles in a smooth stretch of the creek, the pond and an old predator free aquarium. I've promised my only Chorus Frog company by mid-summer.
