Currently I have 3 American Bullfrog tadpoles and the pair of Bakhuis I just bought are supposed to be here tomorrow. The bullfrogs my son decided to name Gary, Jeff, and Garfield. I think those are really cute names for our fat tadpoles (just getting fatter everyday and their little legs are starting to develop). Haven't named the Bakhuis yet but I am sure when they arrive tomorrow my son will be full of ideas (little does he know I already have a name in mind for the female, I might like to call her 'Priya' so we will have to see if that name suits her when she arrives).Ive got Rainman & Reggae, Starlet (since shes started to come out more) Elid, Kashmir, Galaxy and Ms Mandelbrot.
I also enjoy respecting them as individuals in this way. I like to give them their names informed by their observable character, but in some cases, I labored over it for so long that I settled for simplistic descriptors. For instance, with one group, I forgot the names I'd given repeatedly for three years, which is actually what prompted me to start keeping records. Referring to one as Blobhead really goes against my aesthetic, but I'm trying to teach myself not to take everything so seriously all the time.I have to admit to being charmed and putting thought into it because it makes me happy.
