The subject of this entire thread was an Imitator with a HUGE bubble....so huge and symetrical that it's front legs developed inside the bubble.

Check the pics...that bubble was huge !

LOL- well I'd love to see the vanzo pic! This guy, named "Truman", still hasn't popped his other leg. I won't be home most of the day tomorrow to check on it ever 20 min either. Hopefully it pops over night and I can get a good pic in the AM

Just an amazing photo documentation. The gasses inside the tadpoles body caused the bubble -which was symmetrical, to develope and THAT allowed us to see the front arms and the process where the tadpole forces them out.

I have no doubt some Grad student somewhere would be very interested in using those pics.
