Found dead in stream.
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.
About 200 to 300 tadpoles in pool of Tecolote Creek. The pool is 20 m x 7 m & 1 m deep. Pool also had many crayfish.
About 200 tadpoles up to 10 cm long in deep pool right before stream flows under Genesee Ave.
100+ tadpoles 1.5 to 5 cm long.
About 20 tadpoles 2 to 5 cm long. Some developing legs.
Estimated 500+ tadpoles in pool just west of Genesee Ave. Captured 8 for photos & to allow them to develop to help confirm ID.
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.
