Frog Life Cycle

The life of a frog starts off as a tiny jelly-like egg floating in the water, which we call a frog’s egg. After a short while, a baby frog called a tadpole hatches from this egg.

The tadpole looks a bit like a fish, with a tail to help it swim in the water. As weeks go by, the tadpole begins to grow legs. First the back legs, and then the front legs.

While his legs are growing, the tadpole’s tail begins to shrink. This is when we call it a froglet. The froglet is almost a grown-up frog but still has a little tail left.

Finally, when the tail disappears, the froglet becomes a full-grown frog, ready to hop onto dry land and start the whole cycle once more by laying eggs of its own. Isn’t that amazing?
