tadpoles we found these tadpoles during a nature survey, in a puddle that was created in a construction site - where a new neighborhood was being built. <br />
we reported it - and the people of the environmental section in the city came, collected as many tadpoles as they could into buckets, and rescued them - moved them to a near by winter-pond. I hope most of the tadpoles we found grew up to be frogs! Geotagged,Hyla savignyi,Israel,Middle East tree frog,Winter Click/tap to enlarge
