I work at a grocery/department store that also sells fish, I noticed a couple tadpoles in with the feeder fish, roughly 2 and half months ago,they were just slightly bigger than the feeders, decided to get em for my 30 established tank and watch some nature happen.
Did all the raising tadpoles research and they've been growing well, one is now 95% frog and the other got front legs a few days ago, they have webbed back feet, normal front ones, and the almost full frog one has started making a low pitch click/chirp noise today,
I just can't seem to find any frog identification charts anywhere and would like to know what they are so I can give them the best care possible, the fish distributor is Michigan based if that's any help. I'm thought they would be adf or acf, but these seem a little mire pale and speckled rather than spotted as the pictures I could find were, any help or speculation would be appreciated...
Sorry I couldn't resize them, taken with my phone
They are sitting on a quarter of the lid from a gallon ice cream pail, for size reference
A better look at the speckleyness

I'll take a guess at some knd of bullfrog.
Look up images on the web and see if you can match it.
1 Tiger-Legged Monkey TF
1 Ornate Pacman
3 Tomato Frogs
2 Brazilian Yellowhead
2 Orange Terribilis

Ahhh, yep, I never woulda thought bullfrog, with it being from a fish supplier, but yea, found a couple pictures labeled American bullfrog on google images, exactly the same look. Thank you very much. Now I've gotta figure out how to make a soundproof terrarium...

If the tadpole was huge, it was an American Bull Frog, if the tadpole was smaller, it could be some sort of Leopard Frog or something similar like that

They look American to me as well.
Get some crickets and make sure there is a dry area for the morphed one.
Nature has no mercy, people have the option.
