What Type Of Frogs Will My Tadpoles Be?

It is nearly impossible to tell what type of frog a tadpole will turn into. There are nearly 4,000 species of frog in the world, so the best course of action would be to narrow down what species of frog are native to the particular area you are resident in. Tadpoles live in the water and breathe with gills, and are similar in the way they swim to fish. Lungs will develop towards the onset of adulthood and the mouth will expand to become the same width as the head. Tadpoles are easy to keep and the most important thing they require is fresh, clean water at all times. They should be kept in fishbowl or a decent sized secure plastic container. Tadpoles should be fed boiled, drained, and frozen lettuce that is chopped into small chunks, the size of ice cubes. The tadpoles should not be overfed as this can dirty the water. The time it takes for a frog to develop from a tadpole can vary between 8 and 12 weeks depending on the species, the temperature of the water and the general environment. When the tadpoles start to develop small legs, a means of them getting out of the water should be provided. This could be made using small stones or branches. This is because most frogs live on the ground and will need assistance to get out of the water once they are no longer tadpoles. Once they become frogs, some will only have three legs. This is because it is common for dragonfly nymph to eat one of the stubs at the rear, during the tadpole stage. Some frogs can also be born with more than four legs, if a parasitic flatworm, which rearranges the limb bud cells of the tadpole, has infected them.

Without seeing a picture of the adult frog it is really hard to say which breed it is.  Based on what you have said in the above I would guess you have some type of tree frog.  I found a website that lists all of the main types tree frogs that you would find in the United States (only a few).  Compare these with what yours looks like and see if any of them match!  Hope this helps you.

Well, I had about maybe 200 of those little tadpoles that I had found at a nearby lake and I had researched them and waited and waited and they end up to be little, tiny, cute, toads! ☺ No they r not tree frogs because there is no tree frog that small!! The toads will be about the size of the tadpole you have right now..... Hope that helped!!! :)

My tadpoles, I got from a friend a few weeks ago. Everyone I've asked has said their likely to be a common breed, green frog, mine are currently black and just under an inch long so I'd say their likely to be the same. Otherwise check other sites or buy a book related to the breed.
