Eggs are laid!

Tadpoles grow!

Tadpoles grow legs!

Frogs lay their eggs in water. In about 1 to 3 weeks, the eggs hatch and become tadpoles. Tadpoles breathe underwater using gills. They have tails to help them swim. After about five weeks, the tadpole begins to change into a froglet. It starts to grow legs. Their tails become smaller. Skin starts to form over the gills. The froglet begins to develop lungs so it can breath air on land. Their tails begin to shrink as they grow. About eleven weeks after the eggs are laid, the frogs are fully grown. The adult frogs have lungs to breath air, legs, and no tail. Most frogs will live on land, and will swim sometimes in water. Female frogs will start the life cycle over by laying more eggs.
