Default What is this?

Back when I worked in a pet store, we would get things like crayfish and random tadpoles(or whatever they were) in with our feeder fish.

This guy came in one day and I ended up taking him home, mainly because I was worried he'd get eaten by the giant koi we had in the tank, but I never got to see him change into whatever he was going to be(I gave him to a regular that had more room for him).

Anyway, anyone have any idea what this is? I'm curious if it just ended up being a bullfrog, but I was secretly hoping it would be a salamander... I'm sure I'm wrong.

Bullfrog seems like a good guess. It is certainly a frog. All salamander larvae have external gills - most of them look like miniature axolotls, more or less.
