We're taking a look at all of the currently known information about Frogs that are coming to Minecraft!
Featured Minecraft Frogs Guide

Minecraft Live 2021 brought the announcement of the upcoming Wild Update that will be bringing a variety of new and exciting additions to the game. One of these additions is going to be Frogs, which you will find in swamp biomes taking up space and eating any bugs that happen along their way. If you’re curious about this new addition to the game, we’ll walk you through what we know about them in this guide!

We also have guides for other new additions in the Wild Update, such as a look at Deep Dark Cities and Mangrove Trees!

Frog Details

While not everything is known yet about the Frog, we do have quite a few details about them from the Minecraft Live stream. You can find out all of the currently known information below.

Release Date

Frogs will release along with the Wild Update, which is scheduled for 2022. Unfortunately, we don’t have more exact details that in terms of when it will release. There will likely be snapshots available that will allow you try out some of the new features ahead of time though!


Frogs will hop around, ribbit/croak, and will jump onto lily pads and big dripleaves! They are pretty chill overall, and make for a fun animal that adds to the feel of certain biomes.

Frogs will attack small slimes and small magma cubes. If they attack a small magma cube, they will leave behind a froglight block. The color of the light is determined by which frog variant attacked the cube!

Colors & Variants

Frogs can be found in a variety of different biomes, and will come in three different colors: White (Tropical), Green (Snowy), and Orange (Default).

Each variant will have some unique use for the player, but it has yet to be announced because they are actively being worked on at the moment.

Here’s a look at the default frog, which is an orange and copper type color:

Here’s an example of the tropical frog, which is a white/beige color that blends in with sand:

Here is the snowy frog variant, which is a darker green color:

Frogs in their baby form will start out as tadpoles, which can be found in the water. These can be picked up in water buckets, and you can place them in a different environments to make the different frog types. If you place a tadpole in a cold biome, then it will grow up to be a Snowy Frog (snow, taiga, ice spikes, etc.) and if they are placed in a hot environment (desert and possibly lukewarm/warm ocean biomes), they will grow up to be a Tropical Frog.
