Default traveling tads...

I've read the most delicate stage is the tadpole stage.

My eggs are developing into tads. They're wiggling around, but there is still clear egg cases.

I recently took my eggs home so my boyfriend and family could see them. well, my boyfriend is coming back up to visit me, 2.5 hours away. I want my tads back! :twisted:

Do you think the tadpoles will be okay to travel?

any ideas?

I don't think tads are the most delicate stage at all, once they are free swimming.
I would say the eggs are more fragile, followed by newly morphed froglets.

If they're still in the egg sac, then they still count as eggs, yes?

I don't see making that trip to be a big concern provided they don't get jostled around too bad and the egg sac busts (this could be ok if the tad is developed enough) or dried out.

Keep em moist, keep em on a flat level surface so they don't slide off the dish, and don't let em be exposed to open air too much and you'll be fine
