Tadpole. This tadpole, which started its life as an egg, will undergo metamorphosis to change into a froglet and then an adult frog. It generally takes 12 to 16 weeks to grow into an adult frog, but it depends on environmental conditions. While thousands of eggs are laid, only about 10 out of 1,000 tadpoles will reach the adult frog stage (FrogsGalore Museum).
