 HELP PLEASE .. Are tadpole got his hinn legs bitten off .. What do we do ?

We went to are trailer and caught little fish and tadpoles And are biggest tadpole just grew his legs and is turning into a frog but the fish attacked the tadpole and bit off half of his legs . What should we do? Will they grow back ? Please help we are really worried that the tadpole will die ! Will the tadpole grow into a frog without back legs ?

Breezy from SLB in Baudette Just yesterday I realized I had the same problem occuring between my tads and my sunfish. The wounds will most likely heal however the portion that has gotten ripped off will not grow back. At this point you need to prepare yourselves to take care of this froglet through the duration of it’s life and not release it back into the wild, there is will surely die. TO AVOID IN THE FUTURE make sure that the other predatory fish in your tank are full fed everyday. This will help eliminate the need for them to seek out more food.
