Question: Where can I get tadpoles?
Answer: There are four good sources:
Alexteroon obstetricans -- Midwife Frog (It is often called Midwife Toad, but isn't a toad at all)
Unlike most frogs, the female midwife frog lays her eggs on land close to water. The male midwife frog takes the eggs as they are being laid by the female and twines the strings of eggs about its hind legs. He subsequently carries these around with him, checking them for correct moisture levels and moistening them in dew or shallow water or during the day sheltering with them in a hole. After about a month he finds a body of still water where the tadpoles can hatch. Then, at a certain time, he knows to suddenly climb out of the hole and jump into the water and begins swimming energetically. This breaks the egg membranes, and tiny tadpoles scatter in all directions.
