Monday, May 7 2007- Kansas City, KS I spent the first few hours wading through the mud and muck of a flooded field trying to catch some Great Plains Toads and Plains Spadefoots. I got plenty of the GP's, but no spadefoots. I also found a shell of a painted turtle. Then I visited a concrete "pitfall" and found 3 plains leo frogs, and a baby RES. After it got dark, I waded into another wetland and found numerous Leo frogs, woodhousii, americanus, northern crickets, and Gray Treefrogs. I also heard a lot of Boreal Chorus Frogs, but I didnt see any. Dragging a net around, I scooped up some larval sallies, and hundreds of various types of tadpoles. Great Plains Toad 15 Gray Treefrog 12 Woodhouse's Toad 13 American Toad 6 Plains Leopard Frog 19 Cricket Frog 27 Larval Salamander 9 Painted turtle 1 (shell) Slider 1 By distribution, these are either smallmouth or eastern tigers. These sallies have cleaned out my daphnia/ostracod tank, and now Im netting mosquito larvae for them. They seem to eat anything.
