2 Life Cycle of a Frog

3 The frog lays its eggs in the water or in wet places.

4 A floating clump of eggs is called a frog spawn.

5 A frog can lay thousands of eggs at one time! WOW!

6 After 21 days, a tadpole is born! A tadpole is a baby frog.

7 A tadpole has a long tail and lives in the water.

8 Tadpoles eat very small plants that stick to larger plants in the water. These small plants are called algae.

9 After about 5 weeks, the tadpole grows hind legs and forelegs.

10 The tadpole also starts developing lungs!

11 Once in a while the tadpole swims up to the surface to breathe some air.

12 Over the next few weeks, the tadpole starts looking more like a frog. The tadpoles tail gets smaller and its legs get larger. Its lungs get bigger too.

13 Finally, the tadpole turns into a frog!

14 A frog has legs, lungs, and no tail. It eats insects and worms and lives mostly on land.

15 Eventually the frog finds a mate. The female lays eggs and the male fertilizes them.

16 Then the cycle begins all over again!

17 The frog lays its eggs. A tadpole is born.

18 The tadpole grows legs and develops lungs…

19 And then the tadpole turns into a frog!
