What are they ?

1 month 1 week ago #689549 by Screamin Scott
I rescued a mess of frog eggs from a ditch where the eggs were laid (and which has since evaporated). They have since hatched and I've noticed something else in the water with them. Pardon the crappy image as I have never tried to photograph something just under the surface of water before. Hopefully someone will know what they are. I know for sure that they aren't mosquito larvae though...

Will be very cool if you can keep them alive until they turn into frogs.

That is my intention. I did last year as well. The ditch that the frogs lay the eggs in dries up before the tadpoles can turn. Thus I try to save as many as I can.

Glad you found the ID. I was going to suggest a source but you've already identified them. And they are new to me.
