Life Cycle of a Frog

 

1. They usually begin life in water as eggs. A ball of jelly surrounds each of the eggs, which are 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.

 

4. Then in 10 to 12 weeks the tadpole develops front legs. After its front legs form the tadpole does not eat, but absorbs its tail for food.

5. At about three and a half months it becomes a froglet and can eat small bugs. It now spends most of its time out of the water.

 

6. Once the frog finishes growing and has lost its tail, it is considered an adult frog. Frogs are amphibians that can live on land or water.
