A frog goes through four stages of life. It changes and grows at each stage.
Frogs lay eggs. That’s where new frogs come from. The eggs hatch in one to three weeks.
Then a tadpole hatches from an egg. A tadpole lives in water. It uses gills to breathe. It has no legs.
Next, a tadpole grows into a froglet. A froglet looks more like a frog. It has legs for hopping and walking. It has lungs for breathing air.
An adult frog doesn’t have a tail. A female lays eggs.
