    Anyone know where I can get frogs or tadpoles for a pond? My mother-in-law has a pond in the backyard with some fish and wants a couple of frogs. Suggestion?

    Is this a new addition? Usually the frogs will find you!

    The wandering turtle will probably find the pond also. Then the fish will disappear!

    The fish are a little to big for the wandering turtle. LOL She has two frogs. The warm weather brought them out and then we had another cold front. Not sure if they are hibernating again or they took off. It's just a man made pond sits about 2 foot off ground about 6ft by 6ft round. Measurements might be slightly off but you guys get the idea.:)

    It's a bit early for bull frog tadpoles, but many garden centers that carry koi fish, also carry tads.

    Ack - don't buy tadpoles!!! Wait for the silly ones around here to start laying eggs in my dogs 'kiddie pools'. I'll bring you all the tads you want!!!!!:eek:

    Of course, they will mostly be tree frogs, but there will be lots! And I'm NOT taking in ANY MORE!! Nope, not gonna do it!!

    No WAY!

    Anyone else want tadpoles??

    Unless they turn finicky -- I should have lots all summer. I'll post when the first batches come in, and I'll just take them to a neighboring pond if no one is ready. Last year it was almost like they waited until I retrieved the tads, waited two weeks and laid more!!!! (they know a sucker when they see one!);)

    I still have my 10 gal empty, so I can always hold them for a bit if anyone needs me to - and we can travel too!:)

    usualy the presence of fish is a bad sign for frogs...you should get rid of the fish, then the frogs will come by hundreds!

    Never heard of that. My friend has a pond with about a dozen Koi and she also has tons of bullfrogs.
