Where is a good place to buy a bunch of tadpoles. I am interested in trying to raise them. Currently I buy them from the pet store, raise them and turn them loose in my pond out side. But they get big and leave.

ummm, what species are you releasing into the wild? is it a native species?

If not, i recommend you curtail these activites immediatly because the introduction of non native animals is one of the leading causes of the decline of native amphibians and reptiles.

Yours sound like bullfrog tadpoles. Unless you are in CA or a few other Western states, they are likely native, but check range maps first.

What I need is some kind of amphibian bomb to get rid of all the bullfrog tads in our pond.

Bit drastic but get a few big fish or terrapins or an axolotol should clear out the tadpoles for you Click the image to open in full size.

Which would also be introduced species.

Perhaps I could rent a turtle from someone(or start a turtle hotel with free food...heheh)

I doubt axxies would be effective in the size pond I have...unless someone gives me like 20 adults.
