shrinking heads, Oh my!

Now I realize why the less developed of the three tadpoles seemed a little larger and lighter in color than the other two! It was a gradual change, so I didn't notice until yesterday that as the tadpoles develop into frogs, their heads shrink and their skin loses transparency. The frogpoles' heads are half the size of that of the remaining tadpole. It appears the last one may develop arms today or tomorrow.
