OBSERVING METAMORPHOSIS IN THE LABORATORY!


If we are lucky we are going to be able to see one of the most interesting transformations in nature in the class, thanks to Ramón Paño from E2A that has brought 10 tiny tadpoles to the science laboratory.  Metamorphosis occurs in many species of animals and is always a fascinating change sometimes difficult to totally understand.
 We have studied metamorphosis in tadpoles and seen how the changes that occur are not only external but also internal. As you know, tadpoles have fins to swim, they are herbivores and have gills to breathe. Adult frogs have legs, lungs and are carnivores.
 This is a great opportunity to take a close look at this process. The changes will be published on Science Magazine!!
