 Oh dear urgent help PLEASE

oh dear urgent help PLEASE

PLEASE help.

i have a bullfrog tadpole, (i think) and he takes for EVER to grow!! but he stands on his tail and gently places his nose just below the surface, i have noticed he has a slight crook at the dock of his reciting tail. he is about almost 2 inches in length and LOVES eating. i will pour in kibbles of frog food and he’ll eat it in a matter of minutes- most of the time LOL :P i noticed he has developed nostrils and only has one gill. his legs are small little sticks outside of his body which remind me of ski poles LOL :)

1) why does he stand on his tail??
) why does he have a crooked tail
) why is it taking him so long to grow
) and any other info is NEEDED

thank you so much everyone :)

Bullfrog tadpoles can take up to 2 years to develop, but since it has some little legs already it’ll probably just be a couple more weeks/months.

Sorry it took so long to respond, I really don’t come here that often anymore, apparently neither do a lot of people :/

um im not really sure about the bull frog taking 2 years to grow i just caught one last year out of a ditch that grew to full size in a matter of months, im currently housing yet another bullfrog tadpole he too only has legs and has been with us for a month now, i feed him fish flakes and algae tabs and he swims around cleaning up after my fish. Many of my tadpoles have "stood" on their tails its just a way of holding themselves up when they need to, since they lose their tails its nothing to worry about, good luck and wish you and your lil froggy the best
