Caption: Tadpole just before hatching. The early stages of the embryo's development are evident here with discernible characteristics beginning to emerge. The head can be seen on the lower right. The gills are attached to the side of the head. The tale is visible in the upper left. Most eggs will grow into tadpoles and hatch within the space of a week.
