Frog Reproduction

Page 15

The reproduction of a frog is fascinating. It starts with the male and female mating at a pond. The female frog lays about one hundred eggs and the male covers the eggs with liquid from his body. The eggs sink to the bottom of the pond. The egg is in a kind of jelly. There are five stages of change from egg to adult frog. These changes are called metamorphosis. Stage number one is laying the spawn or eggs in the water.
