Let’s Study Metamorphosis – Day 16 – Frogs and Paul McCartney!

I just discovered this song. Maybe the rest of you have always known about this song, but it’s brand new to me, and we love it. “We All Stand Together” by Paul McCartney from 1984. This video is called, “Rupert and the Frog”. I’ve never heard of any of it, but it’s all over YouTube, so obviously lots of other people have known about it for a long time. I listened to it last night, and my littles wanted to watch it over and over again. I turned it on today, and they came running. So here it is for you to enjoy as we envision together what our tadpoles will look and sound like (wouldn’t that be cool!) in a few more weeks.




One of our tadpoles has one front leg! Only one, but nonetheless, it is a FRONT leg. He is becoming a frog! A little bit at a time. I was amazed to see this leg as I was watching them, and I looked for one on the other side, but there was none.

There’s our excitement for the day!

I’m still pondering how to find a big rock and fit it into our aquarium. They are spending lots of time on top of the lettuce, so I think they need something to climb up on out of the water to breathe some air. I’m not sure how the gill to lung transition works.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of research about frogs and toads. I found out that there aren’t any Red Frogs in Texas, so I’m still not sure what kind of frogs they will be. But I found a website that lists and shows pictures of all the frogs in Texas and where they can be found. So as they develop, I should be able to figure out what kind of frogs they are.
