Life Cycle

Have you ever wondered the stages of a Poison Dart Frogs life cycle? First, a female frog lays 5 to 40 eggs in a little puddle of water. In about 2 weeks the tiny tadpoles will break out of the eggs. Next, the tadpoles are taken out of the puddle and put into a pool of water. In a few weeks the tadpoles tail gets smaller. Then, the tadpole starts to grow little legs and little feet. The tiny frog leaves the water and hops in the rainforest. Between 12 to 16 weeks later, it turns into an adult frog. As you can see, a Poison Dart Frog travels through a life cycle.
