Description

Nature puts on one of its flashiest shows as unique tadpoles transform into adult frogs. Spot slimy frog eggs in foam nests, in pouches in their father's legs, and hidden under wet moss. Watch as tadpoles try to survive in a dangerous world. Some must fend for themselves from birth, while others are protected by parents each with their own unique and surprising hiding places--from mouths to legs to backs. Brilliant color photographs reveal how tadpoles change from smooth, legless swimmers into colorful, air-breathing jumpers. Science expert Sandra Markle's introduction to baby frogs from around the world will captivate young fans of these slippery, slimy amphibians.
