(Just some of the kids names)
Back in early June, I embarked on the rewarding journey of raising 35 tadpoles, which I obtained from a local pond here in the North Okanagan. Over the weeks I saw them miraculously change - evolving into the cute little frogs they were meant to be. You can read about their development in my posts: Looking After Tadpoles, Tadpole Mother to 35 Future Frogs, and Long Weekend with my Frog Babies.
("No Depth Doug")
Of the 35, two sadly passed away before they could be released back to the pond; Charles (who was really, really tiny) and "No-Depth Doug", who was born with just one eye! Of the 33 remaining, I let 30 go back to nature and kept three....Walter, Dexter and Carl.
I knew once they were grown, I'd be looking for a nice place to put them. To make them comfy and at home. To live in style and grace. Well....The wonderful peeps at BioBubble sent me a very cool Premium BioBubble, the ultimate in frog baby living. Kind of like the Trump Towers of Terrariums.
I chose the color purple, because well.... the fact I could choose a color was reason enough to give that serious thought. And it got my vote. The BioBubble was very easy to assemble, with clear instructions and even a number to call, should I have any questions. I had collected a few things for the new "frog pad", which included:
- Glass beads and smooth rocks,
- Cozy country cottage
- Fake flower and leafy greenery
- The FrogFather (from the Tadpole Nursery)
- and of course, a disco ball with a motorized rotating attachment.
You really can put whatever you like in the BioBubble. Figured best to let my imagination do the choosing, as long as it was safe for the tenants, of course.
They come in various sizes and the expandable feature is nice, should you want more room. To get a real feel for the product, this short video demonstration does the trick.

It was such a wonderful experience being a tadpole to frog Mommy, that I'm going to be doing it all over again come Spring, 2014. As for these three frogs, I will be putting them back into the pond in a few days, only because after research, I discovered they naturally need to hibernate. However - I am going to the pet store soon after to pick out a couple of "year around" frogs for the spiffy new frog digs. And in this case, having a disco ball means every Friday Night is Disco Night in frogville.
