How to get Cold, Temperate, or Warm frogs in Minecraft

Guide to Frogs in Minecraft

Frogs are a new addition coming in a future content update to the baseline versions of Minecraft. The feature is currently in testing in Java Edition 1.19. The feature is also included in Bedrock Edition as an in-test feature.  So far, they’re kind of basic. The devs have added a few things so far.  To actually raise them, you need to put the time into spawning them as tadpoles and then feeding them. That’s the subject of this guide, about how to raise the various types of frogs in the game.

What kinds of frogs are there?

Each frog in Minecraft has its own color, and the type of biomes it’s associated with. There are three in total right now, and each one must be raised from Tadpoles in a certain biome to mature into that color. The kind of frog you have will depend on what biome they reach adulthood in. Frogs and tadpoles only spawn naturally in Swamp and Mangrove Swamp biomes. You will need to use the right kind of food to tame a pair of frogs and lead them to the right biome. Use the details below to learn more about what biome you need, and what food frogs eat.

What do frogs in Minecraft eat?

There are a couple of things that frogs will eat in Minecraft, but only one item that you can actually give to them.  They won’t just randomly eat anything. Their primary diet is based on one item, Seagrass. This is a placeholder from pre-1.19 versions of the game. The later versions of the game use Slimeballs as a food source. So be sure to check which build you’re playing before you try to breed or tame frogs in Minecraft. You can cut seagrass from the obvious plants in the ocean, use some sheers to do so.

Additionally, frogs also eat small Slime and Magma Cube mobs. That means that larger mobs aren’t threatened by them, but the small variants are. You can use your sword to break down a larger slime, then trap them with frogs. These smaller mobs will be preyed on by mature frogs.

You actually need slime to breed them as well. Feeding two frogs a slimeball causes them to enter love mode, which is just tlike breeding other animal mobs.
