From Tadpole to Frog by Wendy PfefferWinner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series
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.
FROG FACT INDEX
What are frogs? Frogs are a kind of small animal belonging to a group called vertebrates animals with backbones known as amphibians. This means that they live part of their life in water and the other part of it on land. Amphibians are cold-blooded animals. This means that their body temperature is the same as the surrounding temperature. Their skin absorbs water into their body so they do not have to drink water to survive. Examples of other amphibians are salamanders and caecilians.
