GREEN FROG TADPOLES, AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND, AND EXCELLENT FOR POLLUTION STUDIES, AT $1.00 EACH.
Except during their breeding season,
when they are not collected, our leopard (grass) frogs are hardy and
robust and they can be refrigerated for a few weeks by the user.
Our frogs are measured flat, but
seated. More commonly, commercial sellers measure the body while
stretching the hind limbs. This may add as much as an inch to the
measured length of the frog.
WE HAVE A SEPARATE LIST FOR AMPHIBIANS, THEIR EGGS AND LARVAE, THAT ARE
NATIVE TO OUR REGION AND CAN BE COLLECTED FROM PONDS ON OUR FARMS OF
SOME FOUR HUNDRED ACRES.
SALAMANDER EGGS FOR EMBRYOLOGY WORK
Beginning mid December we will be getting egg masses of Tiger and
Spotted salamanders (Ambystoma tigrinum and A. maculatum) from our own
ponds. These eggs are especially suited for demonstrations and studies
in embryo development- they can actually be raised to free-swimming
larvae. At a beginning diameter of 2-3 mm, they are much larger
than frog and Xenopus eggs and, comparatively, develop slowly. Under
refrigeration, they remain viable for several weeks. Individual eggs of
the Spotted Salamander are very tough and can be separated easily from
the egg mass. Both species of egg can easily be examined
macroscopically as well. Our egg collecting will extend into March.
Also, by early March and in September we collect freshly-laid egg
masses of the Southern Leopard Frog.
