You may have been wondering why some animals like the elephants and kangaroos only give birth to one offspring or cats and dogs can give birth up to 10. Then when you think of frogs, they can lay up to thousands of eggs. This happens because unlike mammals or birds, frogs do not look after their young.
When the female frog has laid her its eggs, it does not bother too much in protecting them from predators. Some eggs may become dinner of a fish while some will grow into a tadpole. Only a few maybe 10 out of the thousands of eggs will become a full-grown frog. That is the reason too why frogs lay thousands of eggs.
The answer to the question about how many eggs a frog can lay is letter C or thousands. A frog can lay several thousand eggs all at once and these eggs are protected by a rubbery covering. These eggs will then split into two, then four, and so on and so forth. The eggs will then become an embryo – a stage where the gills and organs start to develop – and it is protected by its internal yolk which supplies it with the nutrients it need to survive.
After 21 days, the eggs will hatch and they will become tadpoles. After about five weeks, tadpoles will change and will become a young frog or froglet. Finally, they will become full-grown frogs, mate and then repeat the same process all over again.
