Life Cycle of a Frog
A frog goes through several stages of growth to become mature. From the egg, to tadpole, to froglet to adult frog, learn more about each stage.
The life cycle of a frog starts with an adult female frog laying hundreds of eggs in a pool of water in the early spring. This clump of eggs is known as frog spawn.
After 1 to 3 weeks tiny tadpoles hatch from the eggs. Tadpoles are the larval stage of a frogs life cycle.
The tadpoles continue to grow and mature in the pool of water and breath through gills, have a mouth and a tail for swimming. During the first couple of weeks the tadpoles eat the egg yolks. After that they swim around eating plant material.
Over the next 14 weeks, the tadpoles change into frogs. They grow back legs, then front legs and start to look more like frogs as their tail becomes shorter and shorter.
They also develop lungs and eardrums. Once their gills and tails are completely gone they move to live on land and are tiny adult frogs.
Adult frogs live on land, usually in the shade of trees and plants. Adult frogs stay near water so they don’t dry out. They eat small insects and continue to grow. The following spring the adult females will look for a body of water to lay eggs and continue the life cycle.
