Frog Printout

Tadpoles hatch from tiny eggs that are laid in masses in the water. The gill-breathing tadpole swims in the water. It eventually sprouts legs and absorbs its tail, becoming a froglet and then an adult. The adult breathes air and has no tail. After mating, the female lays eggs and the cycle begins again.

egg - Tiny frog eggs are laid in masses in the water by a female frog. The eggs hatch into tadpoles.
tadpole - (also called the polliwog) This stage hatches from the egg. The tadpole spends its time swimming in the water, eating and growing. Tadpoles breathe using gills and have a tail.
tadpole with legs - In this stage the tadpole sprouts legs (and then arms), has a longer body, and has a more distinct head. It still breathes using gills and has a tail.
froglet - In this stage, the almost mature frog breathes with lungs and still has some of its tail.
adult - The adult frog breathes with lungs and has no tail (it has been absorbed by the body).
