Default Talk about a freak accident

So i have a heat lamp set up above my tad setup to keep the temps in the 70s area. Well the cleaning lady must have bumped the setup or somthing. I got home and the heat lamp was on top of the tupperware.

I opened up the top and found two cooked tads. Im just so disappointed. the water had to be over 100 degrees. Seriously what are the odds

Ouch! Tough break. Hopefully you will have some more tries with the tads.

Wow, I am sorry to hear that. Poor little guys, that must have sucked! We'll call it natural selection..... Sort of :?

So sorry to hear that. I really hope that you have better luck. I was also noticing my frogs wouldn't call for about 2-3 months. I am now finding out the temps were way too high for them. It got much coller this week for me, the tanks dropped down 10 degress, and everybody is deciding to call again. It's possible your frogs will like the cooler weather also... good luck
