Default Toads, toads, and more toads....

Tadpoles, yes. Toadpoles, no. Toads do the "black pearl necklace" thing;
frogs do clumps of eggs. Frogs are fair game and tasty; toads are just plain
yucky-poo from the start!

Mine seem to slurp them up pretty handily until they (tadpoles) reach
a certain stage of development, after which they (koi) won't touch
them. It maybe has to do with the 'poison' gland development in toads
and frogs?
