 CONFUSED!!!

okay, Im in Ontario and found some tadpoles, they are now getting fat but have not yet gotten their legs. anyways one day I lifted up the lid and found a frog sitting on the top of the water but this frog was smaller than the tadpoles that, not only, haven’t fully formed yet, but they are BIGGER than the frog who has already grown out of his tail!!!! and when I say small frog. I mean this thing is smaller than a house fly!!! its unbelievable!!!! it doesn’t make any sense, help.

That does sound tiny! Maybe there was a really tiny tadpole in the water that you didn’t see that managed to morph unnoticed? Either way I’d seperate it now from the others. Do you know if it’s a tree frog, true frog, or aquatic frog? What do the feet look like? Knowing something like that will help you put together a setup for it.

Most frogs get smaller when they transform, mine did that.

When mine morphed they lost SO much weight. Then again they were common frogs.
