Caption: This African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) has nearly completed metamorphosis. This species is found throughout most of Africa, and is important in research. It gets part of its name from the claws on its hind feet which are used to stir up mud to hide from predators. Frog metamorphosis involves three stages: egg, larva (tadpole), and adult.
