 PetSmart Tadpoles

Hey guy,
I am usually on the leopard gecko forum but yesterday and the day before, I went to petsmart and found tadpoles. They sell them with their feeder fish. So I picked one up and the day I brought him home he was ready to come of of the water, so if not for me he would have died. I bought him a rubbermaid container to house him in and had enough room that I wanted to get a second one. So back to petsmart I go, and found another guy/girl. I think it may be a girl because as a tadpole it is already bigger than my little toadlet. Any just thought I’d share this with you. Here is the newest girl the tadpole, which will be a toadlet pretty soon.




This is her setup





And here is Clyde the Toadlet













Let me know what you guys think. If you want to see Clyde he is on youtube, I’ll post here ! I think they might either be American, Californian or Western Toads, but I think they might be too young to ID. I would really appriciate your thoughts. Thanks ~Evelyn

So found out they’re not toads at all, but frogs.

Got to love saving things! and raising tadpoles.. It’s such a neat experience seeing tadpoles go from eggs to full grown frogs/toads.. or anything to do with tadpoles.

Best of luck to you bud, Would like to see some pictures for sure.
See ya, Cody.

do not feed your little friend until his/her tail is completely absorbed because during that time they get all the needed nutrients from their tale. When he/she is done absorbing it move is to a 10 gall with a divider, have water about an 1 or 2 of water with gravel on the bottom, and on the other side use moistened cocoa fiber and put small hide. for feeding i would suggest feeding 3-5 crickets every day or two, they should be small crickets, the size above pinhead, and if it gets to the size of a silver dollar feed it medium crickets-- good luck with your new bud!!

Thanks. They have all aborbed their tails now. I have 3, one of them died. He had gotten out, I found him hopping around my room, and ever since then he was dehydrated. As I was giving him a melafix treatment he died. The 3 others are hopping around their enclosure just fine. I have been putting crixs in and watching them eat them. They have been eating 2-3crix each. They even stock the crix!
They are on moist coconut fiber with a water dish, hide and plants. Thanks again. Oh I have taken care of frogs before. I own a white’s tree frog. I also used to have 4 american tree frogs, which are very similar to these pacific tree frogs. Just wanted to let you know. But I have never owned tadpoles, so I learned something. Thanks again.
