    When I kept frogs the general rule is if the frog can fit in another frogs mouth it will be eatten. Frogs will try pretty much anything...besides ants

    Where did you get the tadpoles? Would love to do something like this. I've been wanting frogs for awhile but would love to see them grow from tadpoles instead of buying a mature frog.

    They were a gift. I've seen a few different places selling them online... it's a kit that comes with 1-3 tadpoles and a 2-gallon tank. I found the tank a bit lacking (plus mine showed up cracked anyhow) but 10 gallon tanks are cheap.

    well as the thread title says it's a leopard frog. As to which exact species of leopard frog it is I have no idea. Sort of odd that it doesn't have any actual leopard spots.

    It's been a couple months since I updated. The frog was showing off, so I took a couple pictures.

    Look ma! I can touch the bottom of the pool! For the record that's a six inch depth he's spanning.


    Then he retreated to his burrow (not really a burrow, more of a depression) to hunt the crickets I just added (not really hunt, more like "sit and wait for one to walk right in front of his snout).

    The third tadpole still shows no signs of legs, 60 weeks into the expected 12-16 week time to morph. He may refuse to change but his environment may have to. Right now both frog and tadpole live in the computer room. With a new child on the way, the computer room is going to become my daughter's bedroom (and the new child will get her old room). The frog will stay with her but I don't want to leave the tadpole tank up any more if I can avoid it. I am considering moving the tadpole to my 75 gallon planted community tank. I figure, if he continues to show no sign of transforming, I could effectively treat him like a extra-large otocinclus. It seems to me he'd find plenty to eat in there, and he's similar sized to most of the fish in there so I don't think they'd mess with him. Haven't decided for sure yet, but I'm not really seeing a downside at this point.

    Tbh I don't think he's a leopard frog like you stated before, I think you stated that. It honestly looks like a weird color morph of a common bullfrog. Same body shape and everything.. Leopard frogs look nothing like that.

    I have being thinking that it's a little unusual that my leopard frog has no leopard spots! Seems very unlikely that I would somehow get bullfrog tadpoles from a company that believes it is selling leopard frog tadpoles... I assume the tadpoles were farm-raised from eggs rather than wild-caught, but who knows, I guess. I had attributed the lack of spots to the environment it has been raised in. I'm looking at bullfrog images now and there are some that look very similar to my frog, and others that look very different. I will have to research this further.

    Honestly its common for companies like that to mix up tadpole species. You almost never get the exact species they tell you you're going to get. I'm almost positive they do get the eggs from the wild. That'd be much easier than actually breeding the frogs in factories.. And you and I both know companies that sell those products for raising your own tadpoles are doing so for the money factor, and it'd be cheaper for them to harvest the eggs from the wild.. And you never know what you'll get from the wild, so you may or may not have a bullfrog.
