After watching the tadpoles and checking on them routinely how did I miss that ten tiny toadlets, like the one below, had sprouted arms and legs as tadpoles and were already hopping on the sandy river’s edge?
Notice how the tail hasn’t completely gone away and will continue dissolving into the toad as it grows.
When the toadlets first exit the water they are very tiny in relation to a human finger.
