From Tadpole to Frog by Wendy Pfeffer

A tadpole is a baby frog!

Female frogs lay masses of jelly-coated eggs in the water, but what hatches from each egg isnt a frog yet—its a tadpole. Tadpoles are likely tiny fish that breathe underwater through gills. As the tadpole gets older, it loses its fishy tail and its gills and grows legs and develops lungs. The tadpole has become a frog. From Tadpole to Frog is a lovely first look at this amazing metamorphosis.

First you'll need a suitable container, like an aquarium, fishbowl, plastic garbage bin, paddling pool, or garden pond. If you are planning on having a frog pond, be sure there are no Oleanders, Pine trees or other poisonous plants near it!

How to Raise Tadpoles

Show less By raising and releasing tadpoles, you not only get to witness a remarkable transformation, but you also bring more frogs into the world--frogs that will eat pesky bugs like gnats, flies, mosquitoes, and more. To keep them healthy and ensure that their metamorphosis goes smoothly, you'll need to have the right set-up and know-how. To raise tadpoles, feed them a pinch of boiled romaine lettuce every day. Make sure the lettuce is soft and cut up into tiny pieces so the tadpoles can eat it. You can also give your tadpoles a couple pinches of fish flakes per week, but don't feed them too much or they could get sick. Once your tadpoles sprout arms, stop feeding them until they're finished transforming into frogs.

Use bottled spring water or well water to grow tadpoles. NEVER use tap water. Make sure the 'source' of the spring appears on the bottled spring water. Fill the Habitat with water. Feed one spoon of Stage One Food every day. Spring water labels can be confusing.

The process in which a tadpole turns into a frog is called metamorphosis, and it is an amazing transformation. Here we have broken metamorphosis down so you can see the stages a tadpole goes through as it develops into an adult.

What is a Life Cycle?

Time lapse - Frog egg and tadpole development

A life cycle repeats itself or goes in a circle for each new generation of life. There are lots of different kinds of animals living on earth and many different types of animal life cycles! Mammals including humans have babies that look similar to adults. Baby mammals grow bigger and bigger until they are full-grown. Other animals including beetles, frogs, and butterflies go through a process called metamorphosis.
