So the boy and I decided to go back to Kranji where the farms were, for a driveabout on the weekend. I happened to see the signage for the frog farm the boy had been to eons ago, for filming, and thought it would be an interesting experience.
When you see the signpost for Hay Dairies, follow and it will lead you till you see the sign for the frog farm.
I love Essence of Chicken, but Essence of Bullfrog just doesn't sound appetising to me.
Just behind the wall is a well-type pond with the creatures. Look a little closer at the planks and you'll see them.
A mating pair?
There is a little shop that sells containers of frog feed for a dollar or two. They even sell tadpoles, huge ones, as these are not the kind of frogs you find in our local ponds but American bullfrogs.
The feed smells like typical fish food. In essence, you are helping the farm feed their frogs for free but a little enjoyment for a dollar wouldn't hurt.
Tadpoles in the breeding pond.
Well, if you happen to bring home a tadpole or two and they grow into adults, you have two alternatives. Either you have frog legs for dinner, or you bring them back to the farm for them to sell, which will mean that you have raised the frogs for them for free. Since the frogs are not native, it is ill-advised to release them into the wild.
Holding areas where you can feed them while they wait to be sold.
A little different from visiting a farm where the animals aren't for sale and consumption. Your cup of tea?
