How long do frogs care for their young?
In only a few frogs do either the mother or the father look after the eggs and sometimes the tadpoles. In no species do both parents look after the eggs or tadpoles together. Some frogs just guard the eggs but other frogs may look after both the eggs and the tadpoles. For example, the male Pocket Frog from Australia, Assa darlingtoni, guards the eggs on land until they hatch and then carries the tadpoles in two pouches along his back until they transform into little frogs.
