Your wild photos: Tadpoles invade pool




Andrea Walker of South Tampa shares some cool photos of tadpoles climbing up her neighbor's pool ladder. She notes that her neighbor is planning on filling in the pool, so it doesn't sound like he's been swimming with the tadpoles


To start, the tadpoles climb up the string. If you look closely, you can see the tadpoles who have just developed their legs climbing up the string and tadpoles awaiting their turn to get into the string, then to the stairs.


"The frogs then used each others bodies to build a staircase to move further up the ladder and then eventually off to their new homes," Walker writes.
