Metamorphosis for Kids


Metamorphosis is a biological process used by amphibians, arthropods, crustaceans and few other types of organisms to develop after birth into an adult form that has a significantly different physiology. Usually the transformation is abrupt and is accompanied by a change in habitat. A well known example is the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly, or a tadpole into a frog.
