Frog Growth after Metamorphosis
My name is Connor, age 11, and I am a homeschooler from the
island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Last night I saw the tiniest
frog I've ever seen. It was less than a quarter of an inch from nose to
bottom. He was so small it made me wonder if he would ever grow bigger.
So, my question is, do frogs ever grow any bigger after they have
changed from a tadpole into a frog?
Yes, frogs and toads may continue to grow after metamorphosis.
