Frog eggs! Amphibians are amazing! April 8, 2013Posted by bsciencecenter in Science.
Spring is an exciting time for everyone, including wildlife! In early Spring, the forest floor fills up with water from melting snow and rain. This temporary body of water is called a vernal pool. It is a unique habitat, which supports life for many organisms, including amphibians. The amphibians seek out the vernal pools to lay their eggs inside of the water.
Watch our video below to see Ms. Pavlicek and Mr. Musselman during their egg collecting trip for the Burlington Public Schools. Each interested classroom receives 10 eggs, food and an information packet. The classrooms will raise their tadpoles and release them back into the vernal pool shortly after.
Wood Frogs use an amazing, special method to make it through the winter months. Be sure to check out the Wood Frog’s story by watching this video:
