Hello. I am raising 2 bull frog tadpoles I got from a friend's pond. They have been in a 8 x 8 glass container for approx 2 years. They eat and are active. I have been keeping the water clean from my pond water and feed them cucumber and boiled lettuce. They still haven't developed legs. A friend suggested my container was too small. Please advise. (The snails are doing just fine.) THANK YOU!

I reviewed a few relevant web pages. Here are a couple that I liked:
- Nothing about raising the animals; however, there is a bit on ecology, and I remember being amused by this story when it was first published: https://www.americanscientist.org/blog/from-the-staff/the-giant-tadpole-that-never-got-its-legs
- A fair amount on creating a nutrient-rich diet here: https://animals.mom.me/raising-bullfrog-tadpoles-12350832.html
- Good detail on healthy captive habitat, especially as the animals mature: https://www.wikihow.com/Take-Care-of-an-American-Bullfrog
I hope this helps.
