A Wood Frog (Rana sylvatica) shown partway through the process of metamorphosis. This is a dangerous transition period for frogs, as they are no longer tadpoles , but not yet fully developed for terrestrial life. It still has a tail nearly as long as its body, and its mouthparts and digestive system are not quite ready to feed on insects.
