Larvae of Tree frog Hyla arborea

  • no external gills (tadpole)
  • eyes prominent
  • Total length :
    up to about 42 mm
  • Upper crest extends far onto the trunk. Seen from above the tiny tadpoles look shaped like a black cello.
    From 8-10 cm body length some Tree frog larvae become oval, then recognizable by the obviously spherical, unspotted golden belly. Tree frog tadpoles like to float at the water surface. Seen in the front they have two small vertical lines on the snout (Photo).
  • Very sensitive to predators.
