Synopsis by Alice Day
In this program, the life cycle of toads are shown with details of the requirements for a tadpole to survive. Despite the large numbers of eggs produced by the female, few will undergo the process of metamorphosis from the tadpole stage to toad. In Amphibians: The Fire Bellied Toad & the Common Spade Foot Toad, viewers will see what food tadpoles eat, and how sunlight must be present to nurture their development. Other details of the living conditions for fire-bellied toads and spade foot toads are given with concerns about the future of their overall survival.
