A froglet is a young frog that hasn't reached full maturity. It is basically the teenager phase of a frog. Apart from a distinct difference of size, the major difference between the frog and the froglet is that froglets still have a tail. The tail is the part that once belonged to the tadpole. Froglets are different from the tadpoles since they have already lost gills and grown lungs, hence they are considered a middle stage of frog growth.

The difference between a froglet and a frog is only a small tail. A froglet hasn't grown out of its tadpole tail at this point but has gotten rid of its gills and gained fully developed lungs. If related to the human stages of life, a froglet would probably be considered an older teenager. By the time a froglet has turned into a frog, it has undergone a complete metamorphosis from egg to tadpole, growing hind legs and then front ones.

Aside from all the changes that can be seen easily, a frog also changes internally. A tadpole has little teeth to help him chew up plants and as the frog matures, these disappear and tongue muscles develop. The digestive tract also changes to match the adult frog's diet.

The difference between a froglet and a frog is letter C or “a froglet has a tail and a frog does not”. Although they differ in terms of their appearance, it is worthy to note that the only reason for this difference is because of a frog’s life cycle. A froglet is basically still growing and developing and it finally becomes a frog once it is done with the full growth cycle.

To make it easier to understand, we’ll discuss the final two cycles of the life cycle of a frog. Twelve weeks after hatching, the tadpole grows a little tail and becomes a young frog or a froglet. Between 12 to 16 weeks, the young frog will then develop into a full-grown frog.
