Notes

About fifty of these tadpoles seen in a sandhill pond along with a smattering of Striped Newt larvae and some lizards (anoles and eastern fence lizard) in the xeric woodlands around the edge of the pond. Our best guess is Southern Leopard Frog, but if anyone has a better idea based on the picture, we'd love to hear it. This was our first Florida trip, and we are woefully unfamiliar with tadpoles down there.
