compiled together in a clump called spawn.
2. After 10 days the tadpole hatches and
wiggles out of the jelly ball. These tadpoles breathe
through gills that are on the outside.
3. Gradually the back legs begin to
appear and the outside gills begin to disappear. One week
after the legs form the tadpole develops lungs and can
breathe our air.

develops front legs. After its front legs form the tadpole
