Frog life cycle

  1. 1. FrogsA Summary of the Life Cycle of Frogs
  2. 2. First Phase• A frog begins its life as an egg.
  3. 3. Frog Eggs• It is interesting to note that frog eggs do not have shells. They are made up of a jelly-like material that protects the eggs from being eaten by fish.
  4. 4. Second Phase• After only a few days, an egg hatches. A tiny tadpole emerges.
  5. 5. Tiny Tadpoles• The tadpole has a head, a body, and a tail. The tadpole will make its home under the water. It will eat algae and very small plants.
  6. 6. Tadpole
  7. 7. Second Phase (cont’d)• In about seven to eight weeks, bumps on its body will turn into back legs.• In two more weeks, tiny front legs will appear.• During this time, lungs have been developing as well.
  8. 8. Third Phase• The third phase of a frog’s development begins with the tadpole turning into a small froglet. It will swim to the surface of the water and breathe air after a total of about twelve weeks.
  9. 9. Froglet• For the next three months the froglet will mature. The tail will gradually become smaller.
  10. 10. Fourth Phase• The fourth phase occurs when the froglet matures and becomes a young frog. The tail has completely disappeared and the frog can now breathe air.
  11. 11. Fourth Phase• At last the tadpole has become a frog.
