Real Life Stranger Things: Giant, freaky tadpole is straight up sci-fi

Earyn McGee is working on her doctorate at the University of Arizona studying “how lizard communities may be affected by stream drying which could lead to the loss of a potential food source.”

She also discovered the mother of all baby bullfrogs.

A tadpole of epic size.

This is insanely large.

“Up here at the Southwestern Research Station there is an initiative to remove invasive bull frogs from ponds. During the removal process they found a tadpole of gigantic proportion,” McGee wrote.

Look. At. It.

“This guy is not the norm,” McGee explained. “Definitely an outlier with some sort of hormonal imbalance!”

Or, you know, for fans of Stranger Things, Dart.

McGee isn’t sure it’s ever actually morph into a frog or how long it will live. But it’s still growing.

“It is still a tadpole just overgrown,” she told her new online following of people who love to be wigged out.
