Get six bullfrog tadpoles and watch metamorphosis on a grand scale! When shipped, these live tadpoles measure up to 2" long. They'll develop into adult frogs with a 4-6" body length (not including legs). Instructions for care are included with each shipment. Keep your bullfrog tadpoles in a 2 gallon aquarium and feed them tadpole food until they become a froglet. Feed froglets and adult frogs adult frog food.
Development Time: Metamorphosis of bullfrog tadpoles to young frogs is slow and can take 4-12 months for complete resorption of tail, etc. (To see the stages of frog metamorphosis in a shorter amount of time, you can order the Frog Hatchery or Grow-a-Frog Kit.) Factors such as tadpole age upon arrival and water temperature, food, and other habitat conditions can affect their growth rate.
However, bullfrog tadpoles are a great choice if you have the time; their large size makes them easy to observe and they can be fun to watch swim, eat, and dive.
Please note: This item is a living being. We hope your tadpole/frog lives a long, happy life! But there is always a chance its lifespan will end prematurely. Before you buy, consider the possibility of disappointment about the tadpole's/frog's lifespan. Guarantees for lifespan and/or replacements are vendor-specific and noted in each product. PLEASE DO NOT RELEASE FROGS INTO THE WILD. If you are no longer able to care for your frog, we recommend rehoming the frog or contacting PHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine at 866-524-5421 or [email protected]
