Our class has pet frogs for Science. We think they are Brown Tree Frogs, which are very common in Tasmania. We are learning about waterways inTasmania and the animals that live in them.

We had the frogs since they were tadpoles and it was fascinating to watch  them turn into frogs. 

We have been feeding them boiled lettuce frozen into ice cubes when they were tadpoles and  fruit-flies and grubs (they were a failure) when they turned into frogs.

They live in a fish tank with leaves, sticks, stones and water. We are going to release them into our school frog pond soon. The image is from the DPIPWE site  at  If you go to this site you can click on a link and hear the frog’s call.
