FYI these are not american bullfrogs but rather the indian bullfrogs Hoplobatrachus tigerinus.

Heres a video of them mating in the wild. There are nore vids on youtube.

Are you keeping them as well? Would be great to gather all those who are keeping them and share/discuss info and experiences.

Nope no space to keep unless I removed something from one of my six tanks. Haha. But I'm keen on keeping tadpoles since can put together with fishes

Tadpoles are fun to keep but once they become young frogs, it is hard to find live food that are small enough for them to eat. I feed my baby frogs springtails and maggot larvae that I intentionally breed.

Turn into frogs liao then pass to others to keep. Lol, but I suppose bullfrog tadpoles should take a longer time to become frogs?

Hi there Simon,
If I am not wrong, from your pics, you have 1 male and 3 females. Any chance of posting a clear pic? Basically, males croak (usually about 3 syllable, eg. croak-croak-croak) and when they are croaking you can see the 'bubble' inflate on both sides of their throats.
I have been keeping mine for about 6 months now. Bought them when they are about 3-4inches. I'm thinking mine is not mature yet as the throat colour is not blue.

Btw, any more pics of their habitat? Seems like the netting that you are using may not be strong enough to keep them in.
