Garden Pond
Appears to have a piece of tail missing
Its a frog tadpole, toad tadpoles always much darker almost black, 
frog taddies nearly always semi-transparent.
- Michael Watson on

The other way I was told of telling them apart is to pop them in your mouth for a moment -- apparently they don't mind too much.

I've never (yet...) dared try this, but the toadpole is supposed to taste horrid and the frogpole not -- or at any rate, not as bad!
