Life, sustained

We interrupt your regular mustang programming for a peek at other wildlife in Spring Creek Basin:

Tadpoles in the east-pocket pond!

Whaaaat?! šŸ™‚ Pretty crazy cool, huh? The east-pocket pond is the only pond that hasn’t been dug out in the last few years. It’s fairly small and fairly shallow, but it does hold water – and tadpoles!

After the recent rain, the two ponds that were dug out in June now also have water! In fact, all but one pond in the basin now are offering water to thirsty critters. šŸ™‚

Those are some HUGE tadpoles. I believe eggs can remain dormant in mud for years. So if you don’t have a lot of frog life around now or previously, these guys are probably left over from when the basin was more verdant. So glad you finally got some rain.
