BULLFROG TADPOLES (Lithobates catesbeianus)
ALIAS: Polliwog, squirt, porwigle
IDENTIFICATION: The larval form of the bullfrog emerges from eggs with gills and a long, flat tail. As the tadpole matures, front and hind legs will develop as the tail is reduced in size.
DIET: Bullfrog tadpoles are considered herbivores, feeding mainly on algae and other vegetation.
SPAWNING: Adult bullfrogs lay eggs in the spring. Seven to ten days after spawning, the eggs hatch and the tadpoles wiggle free.
USE: Once mature, bullfrog tadpoles can be harvested and consumed. They are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
250 tadpoles per acre stocking rate is recommended.
