unfortunate frog pyre

Once we got tadpoles and they grew until they were little frogs. And there was lots of little frogs about the house and they all got killed so we made a little crematorium of matches then we lit it and then pooh what a pong! if any frogs get killed please burn them. (Please feed them live plankton.)
