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.

Here we have broken metamorphosis down so you can see the stages a tadpole goes through as it develops into an adult. It is important to note that the frogs in the following pictures are not all the same species. This is an egg mass laid by a frog. Each of those black dots is made up of a bunch of cells that will eventually grow into a tadpole. Depending on the species, these egg masses can be made up of several hundred eggs!

Frog Life Cycle Worksheet

When a mom and dad frog get together, and they decide to have baby frogs they have to mate. They may mate in a tree or even in water, depending of the type of frog that they are. They will then hug for several days all at once. This is known as amplexus. This is done so that the mom frog can spawn, and create baby frogs.
