Reproduction in Animals


What is metamorphosis? Give examples.


There are many animals whose young ones are similar to adults. Example: young ones of human and the adult human look-alike, the chick hatched from the egg look like a hen.

But the young ones of frogs, butterflies, etc. hatched from the eggs look very different from the adult. The young one of the frog is called tadpole (or larva of a frog) which undergoes drastic changes to form a frog, this is called metamorphosis.
