  Tadpole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tadpole (also known as a pollywog) is a larval frog, toad, salamander, newt, or caecilian.
In this stage it breathes by means of external or internal gills, is at first lacking legs, and has a finlike tail with which it swims as most fish do, by lateral undulation.
As a tadpole matures, it metamorphoses by gradually growing limbs and then (in the case of frogs and toads) absorbing its tail by apoptosis (controlled cell death).
