Tadpole pet

The tadpole we brought back from a pond yesterday is still alive and is being fed on pond food. It has been named Squirmy. For good measure we have a small crustacean type thing that came with a clump of algae. It is also just coming back to me that tadpoles produce a fairly constant small tube of, errrm, poo, and that their makeshift ponds soon look a bit messy.

The tadpole looks as though it is on the verge of growing legs, but isn’t doing yet.
