Hatchlings... (about 9 weeks)

Released another 21 little froglets for a total of 44 released so far (a bit less than half the total).  The remaining ones are in various states of development many having only rear legs but some with no legs at all and a few with front legs and a tail.  (bigger)

When released they scatted and disappear into the clutter very quickly but we did find one from last weeks release.  The pigmentation became much darker and the texture of the skin resembles a frog now (perhaps because they are no longer constantly in water).  It's kind of nice to know at least one made it a week on it's own in the wild.
