Hi, my name is Ethan. This is my brother Justin. Come and I’ll show you what’s in our pond. The mommy frog came and laid an egg. When they hatch they turn into tadpoles. Tadpoles are also called pollywogs. Look there’s pollywogs in our pond! Tadpoles are herbivores when they’re young. That means they like to eat plants and algae in the water. Look, the pollywogs are eating a green gunk called algae. It’s been a couple weeks, now the tadpoles are getting bigger. When the tadpoles get bigger, and there isn’t enough food for them they might eat eachother. After 6 or 9 weeks the tadpoles start to get legs Tadpoles get their back legs first and their front legs last. Tadpoles need to watch out because there are fish and birds and dragonflies that like to eat them. At this point the tadpole with probably eat dead insects and bugs. After 12 weeks the pollywog’s tail starts to shrink And, they’re almost a frog. By now the tadpole looks like a tiny frog with a tail. Now the tadpoles have lost their tails and now they’ve become frogs. Soon the frog will leave the pond and return to lay more eggs next spring. And that is how a tadpole becomes a frog. Thanks for coming to our pond.
