Description

From this pool, I removed:
2 tadpoles without legs (smaller about 1.5 cm long),
9 tadpoles with 2 legs (longest about 7 cm long),
3 tadpoles with 4 legs, &
2 frogs with stump for tails. Each frog was about 1.8 cm from snout to vent.
Estimated 200 to 300 tadpoles & a few frogs could not be captured because they were in water at least 1 meter deep.

Description

I visited the same sites where I saw the tadpoles yesterday, but saw only about 100 tadpoles & they were all in deep water. I could not capture any for photos. Near Balboa Avenue, a large frog jumped into the water as I approached. Estimate it was at least 20 cm from snout to extended hind feet when it swam away.
