Bullfrog                        Leapord Frog



 Female frogs release their eggs by the thousands in early spring in freshwater pools and ponds where the males fertilize them. The eggs attach to plants in the water and within a couple of weeks the eggs hatch into tadpoles. This is the time to collect your young frogs. A net and a bucket are all youíll need. Fill the bucket with the pond water and then net a few tadpoles. Itís not so easy as it seems, but it is fun ó so either wear boots or take off your shoes and socks. Unless youíre planning to raise your tadpoles in an outdoor pond, a few will be plenty. Although they are small, tadpoles are voracious eaters (metamorphosis demands a good appetite) which means they release a great deal of waste and ammonia which can quickly turn the tank poisonous.
