The Tadpole (オタマシャクシ, Otamashakushi) is a fish (technically an amphibian) introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It lives in ponds, sharing its spot with Crawfish, Killifish, and Frogs. They sell for only 100 bells, making them the cheapest fish in the game. It is unspecified what species of frog the Tadpoles are, but they are assumed to be the same species as the Frogs are.
