Pregnant fish and massive tadpoles
The goats and I headed
to the creek Sunday afternoon to find more life to add to my aquaponics setup. The first catch came in the
still waters of our so-called alligator swamp. (No, there are no
alligators in southwest Virginia.) Two overwintering Green Frog
tadpoles were easy to scoop up and are definitely big enough that they
won't get eaten like the baby Wood Frog tadpoles did. After all, these
tadpoles are bigger around than their neighboring fish!
Speaking of fish,
I doubled our school with two more scooped out of the same spot in our
smaller creek. Without knowing their species, it's tough to find much
definitive information online. But if they're anything like Longnose
Dace, then I have two juveniles (with firm dark lines down their sides)
and two adults.
