    What People Are Saying

    Great item but disappointment with sub-company that ships the tadpoles.

  • First I just have to say that the customer service here at HomeScienceTools is absolutely wonderful! We received our kit and then sent away for the tadpoles. The tadpoles arrived in a padded envelope. We immediately could see that the envelope had been opened and resealed by the post office which was due to the fact that the baggie inside that contained water and the tadpoles had broken and the entire envelope was wet. Not one tadpole survived. I was not angry that we didn't get to start the life cycle process but extremely angry that those poor tadpoles had to die that way. I called the customer service line with HomeScienceTools and the representative was extremely kind and helpful. We received new tadpoles from the sub-company within a week and they all survived. We now are watching TEN African Water Frogs grow and I have a feeling that we are going to need a larger tank! LOL All in all, very happy with this purchase-just upset that living creatures were shipped in such horrible ...

  • This product is a great product that provides everything you need to grow, raise frogs from egg to tadpole to frog. Food, container, instructions (which are detailed and clear) and a coupon to have our eggs mailed to us.

  • We have been very pleased with this process. My children enjoyed learning about the life cycle of these frogs and are currently learning about the responsibilities of being pet owners. With that being said, I was not prepared for the level of commitment. After reading reviews, I was under the impression that we would be lucky if 1 or 2 frogs survived. We received 10 leopard frog eggs and out of those 7 hatched and developed in to full grown frogs. The entire family quickly grew fond of each of these frogs. They have distinctive spots and personalities and it is easy to tell each of the frogs apart. Because of this attachment we made the decision to keep all 7 frogs. This meant that we needed to purchase a 50gallon terrarium and other accessories for their habitat. They also eat LIVE food. Right now they eat 3 crickets each per day. Because of the cost, I purchase enough for 3 days ($7 per week) and then supplement with grubs from my compost bin for the other 4 days. I will be very ...

      Frog Hatchery Deluxe Kit

      Observe frog metamorphosis up close with this deluxe frog hatchery kit! Learn about the lifecycle of a frog as you first watch tiny embryos develop into tadpoles and then the tadpoles grow legs and develop into frogs. This frog hatchery has an ideal habitat with a large, clear plastic tank that has a removable ventilated cover. This habitat is large enough to keep adult frogs in.

      Everything is included: special food, magnifier, instructions for raising and caring for your frogs, and a fully pre-paid coupon for 6-10 live frog embryos (redeemable in the continental US, excluding Utah, Alaska, and Hawaii).

      You may get either African water frog or leopard frog embryos when you redeem your coupon, depending on where you live and the time of year. (See details below.) African clawed frogs (species Xenopus laevis) live their life entirely in water. Their tadpoles have both gills and lungs so they can breathe in water or at the surface. Leopard frogs (species Rana pipiens) live entirely in water before maturing and live both in water and on land as adults. Their tadpoles have only gills to breathe in water. Adults of both species have only lungs and must come to the surface to breathe.

      Development time: Metamorphosis from tadpole to young frog can take 6-12 weeks. Factors such as tadpole age upon arrival and water temperature, food, and other habitat conditions can affect their growth rate.

      Guarantee: Nasco, the biological supplier of the frog embryos, guarantees that at least one tadpole will be alive and in good condition when it arrives. Due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the life of the embryos or that they will grow into mature frogs.

      Shipping Note: The pre-paid frog embyro coupon in this kit can only be redeemed in the continental US, excluding AK, AZ, HI and UT. Live embryos cannot be shipped April through October to CA, KY, LA, MT, NV, NJ, NC, OR, VA, or WA. From November through March the states listed above will receive leopard frog embryos. All other states will receive whatever is readily available, either African water frogs or leopard frogs. You cannot choose the species shipped. Typically you will receive your frog embryos 2-6 weeks after you mail the coupon. Severe cold or hot weather or limited supply may delay shipment for several additional weeks.
