I thought this was a fun picture! Here we have the froglet from yesterday's picture at the surface with a large tadpole lurking underneath! Aren't they adorable?! :D It's so much fun to visit with the "kids" every day. The first "wave" of froglets are almost all gone now, but many tadpoles will be growing legs soon and turning into froglets as summer progresses! I never imagined the fun I would have with my little friends! :)

Pacific Tree Frogs are nocturnal for the most part, though males will sometimes be active during the day as well. They hide under rocks and vegetation where it's cool, and come out at night to hunt for insects, spiders and arthropods like pill bugs. When a potential victim is close, they will sometimes wiggle a toe to attract their attention before they grab it with their sticky tongue! They can eat prey that's nearly as large as themselves, stretching their stomach to accommodate the large meal!

More fun froggy facts tomorrow, along with another picture from Lucky's Pond! :)
