Froglet Fact file

Stage: Froglet
Weeks after hatching: 12

What's happening: The 'tadpole' looks like a minature frog. It still has a small tail stub which must be absorbed into the frog's body before it is fully grown.

Need to know: The tadpole has gone through many changes to get to this stage. It has lost its gills, grown teeth and legs, and has developed lungs so it will be able to breathe on land.
