Gulf coast toad tadpoles

Toads picked my pond for a nursery and laid huge amounts of eggs. Fortunately the tadpoles have thinned out to a manageable number.

I'm wondering, how long does it take the tadpoles to become toads? They hatched about a week and a half ago.

Couldn't find anything specific to the species by googling. A species in the same genus takes about 2 months to fully transform.

It took my frogs about three months to fully transform. I am not sure with toads though, probably the same as frogs , it could be anywhere from 2-3 months

A lot of the timing has to do with diet and temperature, but I would say 2-3 months sounds about right.
