They will be able to turn into frogs of different colors depending on the biome heat they are in : tropical, temperate, tundra. The tadpoles can be carried in a bucket.
Tadpoles hatch in groups of 2 to 6 from frog eggs. Also, they do not appear naturally.

A tadpole will quickly grow into one of the frog variants depending on where it is grown. Its growth can be accelerated by feeding it slime balls.

When it is greater than or equal to 24000 game ticks (20 minutes), the tadpole becomes a frog.
