Evolving Tadpoles - Life Cycle Tadpole to Frog Transformation
Evolving Tadpoles-Tadpole to Frog Transformation
Track the incredible transformation from a tadpole to a frog with this rubber Evolving Tadpoles set. It starts with an early tadpole-newly emerged from its soft, jelly-covered egg; the tadpole is fishlike in appearance and has no visible legs. Then it turns into an intermediate tadpole-as the tadpole grows, stumps appear on both sides of its body. These stumps develop into muscular hind legs, and later front legs. The third stage is the tadpole with legs-many other changes occur during the tadpole's metamorphosis. Lungs replace gills, mouth and eye become bigger, and the intestine shrinks. The final stage is a pre-frog-as the tail shrinks; the tadpole continues to develop until it has become a young frog. Its metamorphosis will be complete when the last part of its tail disappears.
