We received a “conseignment” of frogspawn a few weeks ago. Within a couple of days the frogspawn had turned into Tadpoles. We are watching the tadpoles every day and looking at their progress. We have a few already developing their back legs! We read that tadpoles like to eat anything green, in particular green grapes  – however we quickly realised the importance of the saying “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet!!!!!”
