Common Frog tadpole

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is returning to the life cycle of the Common Frog (Rana temporaria).

My last post showed three recently hatched tadpoles on the remains of the frogspawn.

The tadpoles have grown considerably. Their external gills have disappeared and they now resemble a fairly typical tadpole.
