I hope he is.
My husband had to go down the bottom paddock today and the puddle is empty now, still has water, but no tadpoles. So I am hoping quite a few survived, but with people driving down the paddocks all the time, I'm not really sure, it's right where the 4x4's pull into the bottom paddock and with the place on the market and a few different vehicles down there in the last week or so....

We have two of the little frogs in a tank.. the others we let go. I just want to ID them properly. Is this ok? or should I just have let them go?

They should be released soon after metamorphosis, but if your just keeping them for a while to id, that should be alright.
