Thanks Bill. At that length I would say it is most likely to be a bullfrog tadpole. They take 2 years to develop and grow quite large compared to other tadpoles. Nice spotting!

How big was the tadpole? More than an inch long or less?

Accidentally placed it in the wrong category.

That should go in Amphibians instead of Arthropods.
