A tadpole is a passive mob and the baby variant of the frog.

Spawning[]

Tadpoles currently don't spawn naturally. They can only be spawned by a spawn egg, through commands and by hatching frog eggs.

Behavior[]

Tadpole swimming.gif

Tadpoles swim aimlessly in water. On land, they flop around like fish and seek out nearest water. They quickly die on land. Tadpoles shortly grow up into one of the variants of a frog depending on the place it grew up.[more information needed]

Unlike frogs, tadpoles are hunted by axolotls.
