Froglet - Juvenile, the same ?

Nope...they are not the same / interchangable.

• Froglet - the second stage of life, similar to human's toddler stage. This stage is most critical for some frogs, typically egg feeders, because many difficult species/morphs of frogs rarely make it past this stage. Other frogs have little problems in this stage. Many times frogs in this stage are offered for sale. This is akin to buying a cat or puppy before it’s weaned. It can be done, but is often not the best practice. Usually lasts until 3 months of age.

• Juvenile
- the third stage of life, similar to a human's adolescent stage. Once in this stage, many frogs are considered to be out of the woods, and are offered for sale. Many are about 1/3 to 1/2 the way grown, and depending on the species - thumbnails in particular, maturity will often occur in this time period, but for simplicity sake, we'll define the stages of life based on time from morphing, not actual development as many frogs develop at slightly different rates. Usually lasts until 6 months of age.
