    Again, as always, there were eggs in my pool. This time, though, they surprisingly weren't from the Grey tree frogs. The Greys aren't out yet around here, so I picked up these guys. :) I don't know what they are, but if you look close enough you can see what look like pacman markings. It kinda goes without saying that we don't have pacmans in NC, but that's the closest thing I can find in comparison. I picked up 20 or so eggs but only 11 hatched, but the good news is each one seems to be making good progress.

No/small back legs in front, back legs in the middle, and all four legs in the back. 934862_175174009308513_70295550_n.jpg 264552_175173642641883_687762346_n.jpg

    They'er on a diet of algae, lettuce and tadpole pellets. So, what do you think? I've been wondering if I should give them bigger tubs.. Should I?
    Thanks for looking!

    Very cool! I love frogs and toads. The native species here lay eggs in my mom's pond and I love watching them hatch, develop, and grow!

    @PetMother. Cool! I wish these guys had a pond to grow up in, instead of a salty pool and some little tubs. But oh well.

    @skelly98. That's what I thought, sense they don't have webbing between their toes. Though some tree frogs don't have it either, but these guys can't even stick to the dish in there to save their lives. :)

    I've got a field guide for amphibians in our area (I'm in Va, not too far from you), I'll look and see if I can find what species they are!
    I actually don't need the book to ID them :p
    My guess is spring peepers
