We have tadpoles since early summer. We thought by now
they would have started the cycle of changing into bull-frogs. Help!
Bull frog tadpoles may take 14 months or more to mature into adult frogs.
That is why they can only live in permanent water bodies, unlike smaller
frogs that mature more quickly and some of which live in ephemeral ponds.
