Some of you may have read my post on Operation Frog Egg Relocation. Please meet Beijing Skrocki!
I’d like to say that Beijing is a symbol of the relocation program being a success, but as it turns out, Beijing was one of the few (if not only) eggs left in the koi pond that escaped the menu of Big Tuna (my big, sweet, hungry koi) and my OCD pond vacuuming. So, our little 8/8/08 froggie is indeed lucky! 🙂
As for the relocated eggs, they are still doing well as tadpoles, but their road to becoming frogs is much slower than Beijing’s. In fact, I’m beginning to worry about their slow progress — winter will be here soon enough.
