Life stages of the American Bullfrogs in Jurong Frog Farm!

Have you ever visited JFF before? If not, hop on over this coming weekend!

Just last week we had a new harvest from our mating pairs of American Bullfrogs! Looks like chia seeds huh?

Frog Eggs

Then after a few days they began hatching into tiny tadpoles! They look like little grains of black glutinous rice with a tail, don’t they?

Baby Tadpoles

We also have 2 months tadpoles 7-10 cm in length from the CNY harvest. By the end of the 2nd month, they start to grow legs, firstly is the hind legs which takes one month to develop and another month for the forelegs to develop. Now this process is called Metamorphosis (refresher course for most of you!)


After metamorphosis, they begin the process of apoptosis where their tails start to shrink and disappear as they become fully developed baby frogs. Now this baby frogs can be rather jumpy. Just by waving your hand over them and they’ll start hoping and swimming all over the place!

Baby Frog

After about 5-6 more months these little frogs will have then grown into big versions of themselves! Now we have a few thousands of adults bullfrogs here in the farm. If you like you can get some frog feed here in the farm and feed them! You’ll be astonished at how fast they can gobble up their food in a single gulp! Watching them live in action definitely feels way more different then watching a video about the bullfrogs!
