common frog tadpoles ( rana temporaria )

  • common frog tadpoles are easy to care for if being released into a  pond make sure the habitat is suitable for them well planted with plenty of hiding places unlike toad tadpoles which are highly distasteful and poisinous to most prdators  ,frog tadpoles are highly preyed upon by fish ,birds ,newts and aquatic insects and therefore need more shelter ,they can be fed fishfood ,sinking pellets ,bloodworm ,algae wafers aswell as eating algae ,detritus and other organic matter and are good cleaners ,tadpoles take between 5 weeks and 3 or 4 months depending on temperature and food availability as there legs grow the tail is slowly absorbed back into the body before the froglets leave the water and move on to land where they will start eating small insects and worms.
