Category:Tadpoles in heraldry[edit]

Should this be a separate category? Tadpoles will become frogs, so could they not be both in a category Frogs and tadpoles in heraldry. Kiltpin (talk) 17:17, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

An image of tadpole certainly looks differentkly from an image of frog. :) The iconography is different and blason certainly does not contain the word frog if talking about tadpole. Tadpoles should be a subcategory under Frogs, that seems quite simple solution for me. No need for merger. --Miaow Miaow (talk) 20:02, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
It is not as if there are hundreds and thousands. There is no need for a separate category. They could all be in the category 'Frogs and Tadpoles'. Kiltpin (talk) 17:31, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
So why the push for merger of other categories on grounds of an image looking identical (goats/ibexes)? :)) If somewhere a tadpole is depicted instead of frog, there must be a profound reason behind. Therefore I see no benefit of complete frogs/tadpoles merger. Anyway, if some figure is so rare, the stronger reason for having a category of its own. As a subcat. within Frogs Tadpoles will be perfectly OK - juat replace Animals with Frogs. --Miaow Miaow (talk) 17:25, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Kept, as the discussion showed, tadpoles and frogs have quite different appearences. --rimshottalk 22:41, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
