    Default Thousands (millions?) of tadpoles in my pool. Any takers in Jacksonville Florida U.S.A. ?

    Hi everyone, I have a 52,000 gal. pool that has been unused for the last year and today I noticed that there are thousands of tadpoles, approx 1 inch long, swimming around. I have assorted frogs in my yard like bullfrogs, leopard frogs, tree frogs, green frogs, pretty much all florida type frogs. Im pretty sure these are bull frogs because I have a huge 8" bullfrog that I call "henry" that hangs out on my pool skimmer. Is there any suggestions of who might want them? I am moving in September and I am afraid the new owners will want the pool to look like a pool and end up killing all the frogs in there. Are there people that I could contact that would benefit from this quantity of tadpoles? Any help will be much appreciated!! I live in Jacksonville Florida.

    Odds are you are out of luck. Unless a local camp or science teacher wants them it’s going to be very hard to rehome even a few of them. I’d also check your local laws before interfering.(you never know). If you are lucky they will grow out over the summer, metamorphose and leave on their own.
