lol, no, i think you should eat it if it is an invasive froggie and causing harm to your other local froggies (assuming your regulations encourage such things as it is common sense :) )...

Gray tree frog tadpoles! :love
I've been waiting 15+ years for this! They're my favorite frog.
I've been doing water changes on the puddle, put up shade, so they don't boil & tomorrow I'll be carefully removing the dead eggs.

These are wild tadpoles. Left a squished bin lid next to pond & it turned out to be their preferred breeding spot!

First 5 pictures are from today, rest from the 20th.
I added live plants to the puddle today, too.

Should of moved them to a new bin sooner. Moved some into pond's bog. Then setup a new bin lid puddle for adults to think about.

The 3 new koi are fat n happy.
Need to get them on video again, but its difficult now with so many plants and the low shade cloth.
My little panda koi nearly leapt out of the water for lunch, lol. It's very blue now over the translucent white sections, so pretty!

The 3rd lilly floated out of its basket, so no flowers from it. Need to find the basket n get it replanted...I forgot what color it is, too. Lol
