LIVE BULLFROG TADPOLES
Bullfrog tadpoles, known scientifically as Rana Catesbeiana, are native to eastern North America and can be found as far north as Canada and as far south as Florida. Tadpoles are as easy to spot as their much larger parents. While much larger than tadpoles of other frog species (they range up to a sizable 15 centimeters in length), they tend to sport the very same coloration of their parents – skin that is very dark green, almost black to the human eye.
Additionally, Bullfrog tadpoles mature much more slowly than tadpoles of other species. While the tadpoles of competing species may complete metamorphosis in as little as just a few short months, Bullfrog tadpoles can remain in the same state for as long as one to two years before they actually become adult frogs.
The Bullfrog tadpole’s appearance is distinct and one of the reasons why it is easy to spot (its color is another reason). The tadpole has an arrowhead-shaped body with a dorsal fin that actually begins behind its body. And while it is small in size compared to adult Bullfrogs, the Bullfrog tadpole is actually quite large compared to adult frogs of other species.
