  17. 17. 3 STAGES OF INCOMPLETE METAMORPHOSIS  Egg  Nymph  Adult
  18. 18. EGG A female insect lays eggs. These eggs are often covered by an egg case which protects the eggs and holds them together.
  19. 19. NYMPH      The eggs hatch into nymphs. Nymphs looks like small adults, but usually don't have wings. Insect nymphs eat the same food that the adult insect eats. Nymphs shed or molt their exoskeletons (outer casings made up of a hard substance called chitin) and replace them with larger ones several times as they grow. Most nymphs molt 4-8 times.
  20. 20.  ADULT  The insects stop molting when they reach their adult size. By this time, they have also grown wings.

  22. 22. 4 STAGES OF COMPLETE METAMORPHOSIS  Egg  Larva  Pupa  Adult
  23. 23. EGG  The female lays eggs.
  24. 24. LARVA Larva hatch from the eggs. They do not look like adult insects. They usually have a worm-like shape.  Caterpillars, maggots, and grubs are all just the larval stages of insects. Larvae molt their skin several times and they grow slightly larger. 
  25. 25. PUPA     Larva make cocoons around themselves. Larva don't eat while they're inside their cocoons. Their bodies develop into an adult shape with wings, legs, internal organs, etc. This change takes anywhere from 4 days to many months.
  26. 26. ADULT  Inside the cocoon, the larvae change into adults. After a period of time, the adult breaks out of the cocoon.
  27. 27. WHAT ABOUT FROGS?     Frogs undergo a different type of COMPLETE METAMORPHOSIS. From the egg emerges a tadpole, which lives in the water, breathes with gills, and has a tail. As the tadpole grows, lungs and legs form, and the gills and tail are absorbed into the body. Finally, the animal leaves the water and lives mainly on land, as a frog.
