Taari My first azureus baby climbed out of the water today while I was at school. This is the first one that I raised from egg to froglet It's sibling is only a few days behind. If you notice the date on the tape right over the first one's head, it says 3-20, which is the hatch date, so exactly 61 days from hatching to morphing out.

Taari First of my azureus tadpoles to pop it's front legs!

Taari The vents (black and yellow stripes) will get about the size of a nickle. They are called thumbnail frogs because they are about the size of a thumbnail. Right now the babies are the size of a pea.

ValMM They're so tiny and cute! How big will they get?

Taari Well, all 4 of the babies are out of their cups and exploring the grow-out tank. There is one more that is still a tadpole and has not popped it's front legs yet, so eventually there will be 5 babies.

And one of the azureus tadpoles. These are the ones I was taking pics of as they developed inside the eggs. They hatched a week ago and are growing fast!

ValMM Give him time, seeing his sibling out and about will eventually give him the courage to hunt outside the water too.

Taari I spotted the first little one to have left it's cup. The second one could if it wanted to but is being timid.

And second baby is starting to venture out of the water

Taari The azureus tads hatched today but I didn't get a picture of them.

I also caught my first vent tad completely out of water today clinging to the side of it's cup, but it dove back into the water when I went to grab my camera. Same thing happened this evening when I checked on them again. It's tail is almost gone.

ValMM That's so exciting! You must be very good at making frog habitats, since they are laying so many eggs for you.
