    Ok here's the deal.

    I'm in CA where these are nonnative and a few have taken up residence and produced a large quantity of tadpoles. I'd rather not be supplementing the local bullfrog populations so was curious if anyone would want any. The tads should be around one year old. You could use them in an aquarium(but keep in mind bullfrogs in captivity will eventually require very large tanks), or perhaps for a pond(providing you are not in an area where they are invasive of course).

    Currently I'm disposing of the ones I net out of the pond.

    Certainly a long shot but if anyone happens to need any let me know.

    Were talking about American bullfrogs right? http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/narcam/idguide/bullfrog.htm
    Not African bullfrogs

    I would love an African Bullfrog but I doubt you have those. I guess I'll take some tadpoles. I have a tank of some unidentified tadpoles right now, some already have legs forming. How much would shipping cost?

    Just a heads up bullfrog tadpoles can take up to 2 years before turning into frogs

    Yeah I know, the ones at the store (the one I work) never changed into frogs because it took so long and people eventually bought them.

    These are American bullfrogs(Rana catesbeiana). I don't think they get quite as big as the african bullfrog, but adults can still be very large and they are the largest frogs in North America. Course you'd have a long way to go for that. Their is a froglet in the pond somewhere and possibly the father of these tadpoles(who is a big one) which if I catch I will be getting rid of too.

    If I kept them in this pond I think most would turn into frogs sometime next year. If you plan on keeping one as an aquarium pet it would probably be best to start with a tadpole so the frog could be used to aquarium confines.

    Shipping I'm not sure. It will depend on how many you want. Chances are it would run anywhere from 3.58 for a few to 10 dollars for a lot. These guys are incredibly hardy so I doubt shipping priority would phase them considering the abuse I've seen them put up with. Shipping charges is the only limit on the number of tads.

    I would love to have some actually.i raise northern leopard frogs from tads and have them in tanks as pets and not wild. I would actually like some for my ponds outside.as they are native here but they arnt in my neighborhood as noone has a pond but i do so they can live here. They may hop away but they wont go far from the water source. i wonder if you could ship them though. i could also keep some in a tank.

    I would like one for my cp setup, it is 50 gallons and has a small pond, so plenty of room for it to grow in

    an adult frog could easily smash some plants, and their feces are rich in nitrates, so i don't recomend bullfrogs for a cp tank. perhaps consider some green tree frogs, spring peepers, a newt or salamander, or perhaps a leopard frog
