Default White tadpole

Just thought i would share this photo of a white tadpole that hatched a while ago in my pond - it was moments away from being axolotl food when i spotted it among the normal black tadpoles i had scooped up in my net - so now it is living in a luxury pond apartment with top quality slime as I wait for it to turn into a white frog. I am in Western Australia and this tadpole will become a Motorbike Frog - Litoria moorei - when it (hopefully) makes it through metamorphosis. At first i thought it was an albino but not sure now as it seems to have pigment around its mouth and a bit of colour in its eyes.

Very is a beautiful tadpole. Keep us updated on its growth, I would love to see it when it is a frog. I once found an albino red-legged frog ( Rana aurora ), it was weird, it was slow and lethargic seeming. I don't know how it made it to adulthood, but it was pretty cool!

I keep Ambystoma, Cynops, Taricha, Tylototriton, Salamandra, Ensatina, and Dicamptodon. Always interested in more Tylototriton or Taricha.
