Shipping Note: The frog tadpole coupon in this kit can only be redeemed in the continental US, excluding Utah, Alaska, and Hawaii. Live embryos cannot be shipped April through October to AZ, CA, MT, NV, NJ, NC, OR, VA, or WA. From November through March the states listed above will receive leopard frog embryos. All other states will receive whatever is readily available, either African water frogs or leopard frogs. You cannot choose the species shipped. Typically you will receive your frog embryos 2-6 weeks after you mail the coupon. However, severe weather, very warm weather (over 82°), or limited supply may delay shipment for several additional weeks.

Frog Hatchery Deluxe Kit

Item# LM-FROGKIT

Observe frog metamorphosis up close with this deluxe frog hatchery kit! Learn about the lifecycle of a frog as you first watch tiny embryos develop into tadpoles and then the tadpoles grow legs and develop into frogs. This frog hatchery has an ideal habitat with a large, clear plastic tank that has a removable ventilated cover. This habitat is large enough to keep adult frogs in.

Everything is included: special food, magnifier, instructions for raising and caring for your frogs, and a fully pre-paid coupon for 6-10 live frog embryos (redeemable in the continental US, excluding Utah, Alaska, and Hawaii).

You may get either African water frog or leopard frog embryos when you redeem your coupon, depending on where you live and the time of year. (See details below.) African clawed frogs (species Xenopus laevis) live their life entirely in water. Their tadpoles have both gills and lungs so they can breathe in water or at the surface. Leopard frogs (species Rana pipiens) live entirely in water before maturing and live both in water and on land as adults. Their tadpoles have only gills to breathe in water. Adults of both species have only lungs and must come to the surface to breathe.

Development time: Metamorphosis from tadpole to young frog can take 6-12 weeks. Factors such as tadpole age upon arrival and water temperature, food, and other habitat conditions can affect their growth rate.

Guarantee: Nasco, the biological supplier of the frog embryos, guarantees that at least one tadpole will be alive and in good condition when it arrives. Due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the life of the embryos or that they will grow into mature frogs.

Frog Hatchery Deluxe Kit

  • Deluxe clear habitat (about 1 gallon in size) and removable ventilated cover
  • Fully pre-paid coupon for 6-10 live frog embryos redeemable in continental US except Utah, Alaska, and Hawaii
  • Detailed Home Science Tools instructions for raising and caring for your frogs

IN LOVE WITH HIM Review by
It was great! The only problem was that the parcel was shoved in the mailbox, on a hot 88 degree day. Out of 2, only 1 made it. Grow a frog is waaay better, but since I would've not gotten my baby Squiggles without this, I guess I will rate it 5 stars.
frog hatchery Review by
We purchased a frog hatchery deluxe kit from HST. Receiving the kit was exciting, but not near as fun as receiving the tadpoles. My nine year old son came running in with the mail that day. We received 14 live tadpoles and are enjoying watching them. We have had a couple of mortalities, and the kids used the magnifying glass that was included in the kit to check out the deceased tadpole (which was easier to view than the active ones). Then they used the pipet to "bury" it in a hole that had been made in the soil of our African violet. It was appropriate since we received African water frogs. This project is perfect for our homeschool aquatic herps unit. Thanks for being there to supply our needs!

Excited and Waiting... Review by
We are so excited to watch our tadpoles grow into frogs. We have already learned so much. This is a fun adventure for my 4 year old.
Very Nice Starter Kit Review by
This frog growing kit has everything needed for our 7 year old to raise frogs from eggs. (A free coupon is included for the frog eggs themselves.) The included magnifying glass isn't very powerful and the plastic the tank lid is made from is not super strong. That being said we're very pleased thought, and it's been working perfectly.
