Grow Your Own
Raising frogs from tadpoles sounds like a great idea, except for possibly wading through muck trying to scoop them up. Contributor Kimberle Steinberg tipped us off with a solution: Grow-A-Frog kits. She purchased her tadpole over two years ago and watched it grow into a frog that is still alive and kicking today.
We were surprised to find these kits come complete with mini-aquariums and all the supplies to raise healthy, happy frogs. Two kits are available:
These are aquatic frogs which spend their entire life in water; the habitat
and supplies provide the right balance of algae and other microorganisms
to keep the frog healthy and well-fed. Grow-A-Frog frogs are domesticated
frogs bred on Three Rivers' farms; Three Rivers claims they are not found
in nature. And yes, they are guaranteed to live.
