Facts

  • Lack tongue and ears, but have a lateral line; Is tetraploid and obligate aquatic (ref: Wiki)

Discussion

  • Frogs are assumed to differ from tadpoles by del_M and {p_Am} only
  • Males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
  • amphibiaweb states that tadpoles grow from 1.8 to 7.6 cm in a few weeks, but most tadpoles do overwinter (pers. com. Samuel Pinya Fernandez)
