What do we really know about frogs? They live in the water and if you kiss one it will turn into a handsome prince? This is partially true (I’ll let you guess which one is), but the life of a frog really is a marvel of nature. Take a moment now and explore some Frog-ology.
The life of a frog starts out as one of thousands of tiny gooey eggs. Some female frogs lay their eggs in the calm waters of a pond, while others lay their eggs high up in a tree extending over the water. Here the tadpole must fall into the water after it is born.
Once fertilized it takes about 6 to 21 days (depending on the species) to hatch a tadpole. Now you may remember as a child trying to catch these in a nearby pond or lake. They have a big head and a tail and can swim quite quickly.
After about 9 weeks the tadpole begins to sprout legs and the rest of the transformation happens fairly quickly. The front legs will come in and the tail will begin to shrink away. At this stage it is no longer called a tadpole, but rather is referred to as a “froglet.” This new little critter no longer depends completely on its watery world and will begin to explore the land.
