Shipping Note: The tadpoles for these kits cannot be sent to Canada. Tadpoles can't be shipped to Nevada, Oregon, Montana, or Hawaii unless you have a permit. Typically you will receive your tadpole 2-3 weeks after you mail the coupon. However, severe weather may delay shipment for several weeks as tadpoles are only shipped when the temperature is 32-75°F.

Grow-a-Frog Kit

Item# LM-GROFROG

The popular Grow-a-Frog kit is an excellent way to learn about frog metamorphosis!

This kit contains everything you need to watch a tadpole grow into a baby froglet. Just send in the pre-paid postcard that comes with your kit and in a few weeks (depending on weather) you will receive a live see-through tadpole. Over the next 4-8 weeks your tadpole will grow legs and lose its tail as it becomes a frog.

This Grow-a-Frog kit comes with a pre-paid postcard to send in for one tadpole (guaranteed to live), a Fun & Fact Handbook for learning about raising your tadpole, a clear tadpole habitat for raising the tadpole to a froglet, and food. Not only will your kids get to watch the amazing process of metamorphosis, they will also learn to be responsible caring for a living animal.

Your Grow-a-Frog tadpole is of the species Xenopus laevis, or African clawed frog. This frog lives its life entirely in water. Tadpoles of this species have transparent skin so you can see through its body and even watch its heart beat! Tadpoles have both gills and lungs so they can breathe in water or at the surface. Frogs have only lungs and must come to the surface to breathe.

African clawed frogs can live for several years and can grow to 3-5". The small habitat that comes with your Grow-a-Frog is suitable only until the tadpole becomes a young froglet (has legs, arm, and shorter tail). At this stage we recommend one of our Critter Habitats to provide a larger home for your frog.

Development time: Metamorphosis from tadpole to young frog can take 4-8 weeks. Factors such as tadpole age upon arrival and water temperature, food, and other habitat conditions can affect their growth rate.

Lifetime Guarantee: Three Rivers, the manufacturer of this product has an incredible guarantee! First, they guarantee your Grow-a-Frog tadpole will arrive healthy and that it will undergo metamorphosis or they will replace it absolutely free. Once your frog completes metamorphosis they offer a unique lifetime guarantee--to ensure your total satisfaction they will send a free replacement froglet at any time for just $3 to cover shipping and handling.

26 years and counting! Review by
I ordered my tadpole for my son who was about 6 at the time...he is now 32! you do the math! I still have "Froggy" and am very lucky...my friends can't believe I still have him with us!
It died Review by
I had one 4 years ago and it died cause it ate a worm that was too fat.
Our first Grow a Frog Review by
I ordered my first tadpole for my class just a few weeks ago. It came yesterday! The kids are super excited. We have such high expectations for it! I have had excellent service and the tadpole appears to be great!
These frogs are awesome Review by
I think these frogs are awesome. I raised one from a tad pole and he lived for 11 years. He just died this afternoon, and i want another one. It has to be a boy though, cause i love listening to the croaking echo all through the house. ; ) I am told girl frogs don't croak. ; )
Sad loss Review by
I have had a grow-a-frog for 24 years. He died today. We are heartbroken. What is the most humane way to bury him?
