What are Frogs in Minecraft

In Minecraft, frogs are a passive mob (which means that they won’t do any harm) that was introduced in the 1.17 Caves and Cliffs update. They can be found in various biomes, such as Mangrove swamps, jungles, and lush caves.

Frogs can drop Froglight, which is one of the great light sources in Minecraft.

There are three species of frogs in Minecraft introduced in the Wild Update, and each can be distinguished by its unique color and habitat or biome.

  • Warm Frog: White in color and can be found in hotter biomes like Mangrove Swamp Biomes, Jungles, Deserts, Savana, Bamboo Jungle, Warm Ocean, etc.
  • Cold Frog: Green in color and can be found in biomes with lower temperatures like Frozen River, Frozen Ocean, Snowy Beach, Frozen Peaks, Grove, etc.
  • Temperate Frog: This variant of frog is colored Orange and commonly found in River, Beach, Taiga, and Forest Biomes.

These are where Frogs naturally spawn in Minecraft, but you can have your own pet frogs by breeding them. There are currently no ways to tame a frog, but you can contain them and let them breed. Now it’s time to learn how to breed Frogs in Minecraft.

How to Breed Frogs in Minecraft

Frogs in Minecraft

1. Collect Slimeballs

Slimeballs are essential in breeding frogs in Minecraft because this is their primary food. Without this, you can’t breed frogs, let alone grow them. So first, collect some slime balls by killing some slimes.


Slimes are quite rare, but they have higher chances of spawning in Swamp Biomes during the night of a full moon. Sometimes you can also find them underground. You can also obtain Slimeballs from sneezing Baby Pandas, but that’s even harder. Wandering Traders might have Slimeballs as well.

We suggest you just find Slimes and kill them as they drop Slimeballs once slain.

2. Find Your Breeder Frogs

Now that you have what they need, it’s time to look for Frogs in your overworld. Equip your Slimeballs, and frogs near you will be attracted to it. Now that you have two frogs, simply feed them with the Slimeballs, and it will trigger love mode, and they will start breeding.

After a while, the Female Frog will become pregnant, and it will look for a body of water or water block to lay its eggs or frogspawn in. Their eggs will look like seeds floating on the water. Wait for the Frogspawn to hatch; in 2-20 minutes, you will have your first Tadpoles.

3. Take care of the Tadpoles

Tadpoles are Baby Frogs, and they are very delicate. First, if you want them to grow into Frogs faster, you should feed your Tadpoles with Slimeballs. Next, ensure their safety by making sure that there are no predators like Axolotls nearby that could hunt them.

Take good care of them, and in no time, you’ll be having leaping and happy Frogs. You can grow different types of frogs using the same method.

How to get Froglight from Frogs in Minecraft

One of the reasons why players might be interested in Frogs in Minecraft is the source of light it produces, the Froglight. A Frog will drop Froglight every time it eats a Magma Cube. To obtain Froglight, go to a Magma Cube spawn location in the Nether and build a base to cage the frogs in.
