The Toadlets have Metamorphed!

Yep..."toadlet" is the correct name.  They have started to try to crawl out of the pond.  You can sort of see on the one which is a little out of focus on the right that he still has the remains of his tail.  Some do, and some don't.  I worry about the little guys, but I don't know if I should help them out of the pond at this stage, or if they need a couple of days near the water source.  I do know that it is in the 90s here and that black rubber is very hot without the water to cool it.

They are about 1/4" - 1/2" long. It is so hot, the goldfish are very active and I'm afraid of them eating the little guys...and then there's the green frog and the darned bullfrog.

You could run a little sprinkler for them - when they get too hot they could jump in for a little shower! Gotta keep those little mosquito eaters happy. Love, Del

Aren't they adorable! We used to gather toad eggs when we were kids and watch the whole process.
