Tadpoles are larval amphibians who prefer clean water. The other name for a tadpole is a polliwog. It is also spelt as pollywog. A tadpole is the young one of a frog, toad, newt, salamander or caecilian. Tadpoles are predominantly herbivorous.

Their diet mainly consists of algae and other greens such as boiled lettuce. They prefer algae when they are in their natural habitat, but each other green leafy vegetables when they are in captivity. Tadpoles breathe by means of modified gills that exist either on the outside or within their bodies. The lateral undulation helps them to swim like most fish do, using their tail as fins to propel themselves in the water in the absence of feet.

As a tadpole grows up into a frog or other amphibian, it gradually grows limbs and a tail. The process of growing these parts is known as apoptosis. To put it simply, the limbs and tail are grown by the controlled death of cells.
