At long last, Froggie

Way back in January, I found some frog eggs. I ended up with only one viable tadpole, and he has taken his good and plenty time growing up. This week, he pulled himself out onto a plant stem in his "tadpolarium". He held on, in that same spot for about 4 days, as his tail slowly disappeared. This afternoon, he has moved to another leaf. I am taking that as his signal that he is ready to begin his life as a frog. He is super-tiny, but seems healthy. I hope he will eat the tiny flies I have been catching for him.
