Tadpole

Description:

Found this tadpole in a little pond near my house and brought him home. Tadpoles are the larval stage of the amphibians (Class Amphibia) of the Order Anura, wich includes frogs and toads. They feed on microscopic algae, some plants and microscopic animals.

Thanks Marta Rubio Texeira! And yes, I will release it to where it belongs :)

Make sure it gets some food by providing a similar environment as in the pond. Otherwise it may not survive. I hope you will take care of it and release it back to nature when it develops :-)
