FROM EGG TO ADULT

Garden Answers (UK) - - Wildlife -

From Jan­uary on­wards, clumps of spawn (eggs) are laid in ponds. Tad­poles hatch from the eggs within 2-4 weeks; frog tad­poles turn speck­led while toad ones stay black. In about 16 weeks the back, then front legs ap­pear. At around 6 months old the tad­poles ab­sorb their tails and leave the wa­ter as tiny froglets in sum­mer.
