when is the best time to find tadpoles?
I searched a local lake and stream for tadpoles last spring and summer without any luck. I am trying to find out when is the best time to look for them. I know there must be some in the stream because I have seen several full grown frogs there.
I have read another blog about buying tadpoles and the impact it can have on the environment. My thought was to get some water from the stream along with the tadpoles so that I can watch them develop and then release them back into their original environment. Any advice on whether or not this would work? I am not looking to harm either the tadpoles or the environment.
