Bullfrog tadpoles along our beach, literally thousands of them have come up in the warm water along beach. I've never seen anything like it, has gotten crazy looks like something from National Geographic.
Funny thing this is nothing compaired to all the toad tadpoles around the pond on the riprap.

Big and fat, around 4" long didn't see any legs starting yet. I only see 4 or 5 bullfrogs at our pond and they hang out by the dock.

Thought I would share a couple pics, our beach is maybe 40' long strip of TP is maybe 3' wide...they can't even get out of each others way.

That is amazing


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Holy Smokes that's a ton of tads. Time to invest in noise cancelling headphones before they get to keeping you up all night!

They stayed like that for two days. One of the grandsons and I dip netted a bunch while they were schooled up and put them in buckets and transferred those to one of our wildlife ponds down the road, he loved doing that.

Tonight they are doing the same on the opposite side of the pond. They went deep for about a week then came back up.
