The Hidden Life of a Toad
Coming March 14, 2017. Pre-order now!
By: Doug Wechsler
Tadpoles have a secret that only tadpoles know.
In jaw-dropping photos, Doug Wechsler captures the life cycle of the American toad from egg to tadpole to adult. To get these images, Wechsler sat in a pond wearing waders, went out night after night in search of toads, and cut his own glass to make a home aquarium. The resulting photos reveal metamorphosis in extreme close-up as readers have never seen it before.
Budding naturalists will be transfixed by this unprecedented peek into the secrets of tadpole transformation.
