Figure 18.6

Parental care of tadpoles. (A) Tadpoles of the reticulate poison dart frog Dendrobates are carried on their parent's back to small pools of water in the Peruvian rain forest canopy. (B) The female Rheobatrachus of Australia brooded over a dozen tadpoles in its stomach. They emerged after completing metamorphosis. The last time anyone saw a Rheobatrachus frog alive was in 1985.
