    Love that. Maybe the poisonous/brightly coloured frogs could be rarer, thus making their loot more valuable, and the green ones could be more common. You'd also have to find frogspawn on the floors of the swamps, which would release tadpoles within a few days.

    The best idea for the Frogs I have for now.

    So basically their mechanic is just stand in lilypads and they also hop into water to swim and catch fish (considering there's no bugs in minecraft) and that's it.

    Another mechanic is; whenever the frog is killed, they could drop froglegs and slime, with the legs it can be cooked to 'Cooked Frog Legs' or something like that, and can also be used for Frog Leg Stew.
    (For the slime it can be useful for anything instead of killing slimes.)

    And finally the mechanic to feed it must be limited to all fish (except the clownfish and pufferfish).
    It can also be fed with Kelp, as frogs only eat anything from Nature for their diet.

    There should also be different color variations for the mob, and some should have status effects like poison or weakness (although the 2nd status effect mentioned should be ignored for now.)

    I feel along with the tadpoles and frogs we should add another boat update. Meaning using different type shovels The speed of the boat can vary

    we should be able to breed frogs with spider eyes or maybe a new item spiders drop which is one of their legs and after breeding they will go to water and lay eggs like how sea turtles come to land and lay eggs,and u can pick up the tadpole eggs like sea turtle eggs but placing them on land they will die or dry out like coral blocks but placing them in water they wont,after hatching we get tadpoles which will have 4 growing stages which will be

    stage 1.being slightly larger tadpole

    stage 2.tadpole with hind legs

    stage 3. front legs develop

    stage 4.basically fully develop  but with short tail but will still function like adult frog but can not breed yet

    and there should be some variation of frogs maybe 4 like axolotls and 1 can be a super rare variant of the golden toad that sadly went extinct.this would make the game more amphibian aware because alot of amphibians are endangered and having a frog without a tadpole wouldnt seem realistic enough i know its Minecraft but giving it a different stages of its youth would make its stand out more especially since people have resource packs that turn the rabbit into a frog and seeing how it breeds makes a another smaller frog would be boring and just seem lazy we need the frog to stand out from the rabbit.i hope u devs can consider tadpoles they are cute and a frog without a tadpole just seems unfrog like

    It seems that the frog is already in the mob selection

    The frogs sounds good but the idea of it giving a 'leaping' enchantment is a bit weird because it will be a strange enchantment and we already have potions of leaping. Great idea though!

    I’d like to I’d really want to tame them! Since Minecraft has no reptiles like bearded dragons and chameleons we could have different colored frogs perhaps some more rarer than other like the blue axolotl the green one with red eyes would be awesome also make them breed-able thx

    I love that idea. Maybe frogs could lay eggs in the water that hatch and you can get different species, some that kill you when you touch them, some that only poison you and some harmless and all species are different coloured/patterned.

    This is a cool idea and I really want frogs in the game but how about you could be able to catch them in a bottle and it would be a Frog in a Bottle just like axolotl’s and fish in buckets.

    With the frogs detailed today, I cant help but want one more, rare variant of the frog, a poisonous one with a bright colourful scheme. It'd be like a land pufferfish giving poison if you touch it. Could spawn exclusively in the jungle.

    There was some concern that fireflies may also be added as a potential frog food.  The frog loving member of the discord hated the idea as fireflies are toxic.  He compared it to cookies/cocoa beans and parrots.  Visually fireflies would be lovely but please look into this before making them frog food.

    With their most recent conformation as coming to the game, some friends and I agree that the variants based on biome hold promise. A colourful poison dart frog would be an interesting addition to the game. Spawning only from tadpoles who grow up in jungle biomes, the poison Dart frog would be a mob that could be of great use in the early game. Rather than killing it for an item drop like many other mobs, this mob could be farmed without killing it, making it useful in a non-violent sense. Similar to using a bucket on a cow to get a bucket of milk, I suggest the player can use arrows on a poison dart frog to receive poison tipped arrows. It is an early form of receiving the potion effect before players have gone to the Nether and unlocked the ability to brew their own potions. The idea ties into real life history of native tribes using darts tipped with the poison of dart frogs, which adds a sense of history and education to the game as Minecraft seems to like to do. It would also add some awareness to the poison dart frog, as many species are endangered currently.

    Since real life frogs eat spiders, they should be a deterrent to spiders in the same way cats deter creepers.

    It would be cool if, when you breed the frogs, they lay eggs in the seagrass and after a while tadpoles are born.

    Now that the frogs have been announced along with their biome variants I think it would be really cool to have another variant that spawns in the jungle. Skin could be like a tree frog, with the bright red and green. Just a small missed opportunity
