I found these Frog eggs floating in a huge puddle in the middle of the dirt road at Piney Falls. It is easy to tell the difference between frog eggs and toad eggs --- frog eggs are laid in clumps and toad eggs are laid in strings. The little black dots in the eggs are the undeveloped tadpoles. Frogs lay huge numbers of eggs to ensure that a few of the tadpoles can survive to become adult frogs. There is a high mortality rate among tadpoles, they are eaten by birds, fish, and sometimes even other tadpoles.
