The salamander eggs were very cool and since we found the eggs the salamander was there.

The eggs are covered by a jelly coating and we have to be gentle with it.

Awesome sketch Kayleigh

I think they are wood frog eggs

Your eggs are from wood frogs. You are right, they are close to hatching!

In your field notes you mentioned these are ready to hatch! How long does it take for eggs to hatch? Does it depend on temperature?
