...been volunteering to help fellow scientists at the University of Zürich working on chytrid fungi which have been decimating amphibian populations worldwide. You may remember Alf and I going on newt adventures in March ( I posted about it here and here). Today, I left Alf at home with Mr T (who is off work with a ruptured disc in his back...ouch) and went to catch some tadpoles. Mucho fun!
|The coloured marks on the tadpoles head are to locate the tag that had been inserted under the skin.|
It was lovely spending the morning outside in Irchel park working with animals.
No amphibians were harmed in the making of this post ;-)
PS: Alf wishes to thank Juanita for his fan mail!
