Frog Update

Polli and Wog have gone off to be frogs.  Wog was the first to go.  Here is a video of him with full legs trying to escape from the fountain.  He was about the size of a nickel.  He knew freedom was over that wall.  We never saw him after this night.  Good luck Wog!

Polli hung around for another week.  She was very elusive and I did not have many photos of her.  I saw her one last time, her tail almost gone, clearly developed legs, much smaller, maybe the size of a dime.  She looked up at me, the God who peered down at her once a day, and she told herself, that God scares me.  I need to go now.  I never saw her again.  Good luck Polli!

This was a fascinating experiment, to watch them go from eggs to frogs, feeding them organic spinach and suffering from the cloud of mosquitos that also shared the water. It was just a happy accident.  I wish I could do it again.  Who knows.  Maybe next year one of them will come back and lay eggs in the fountain again.
