My cousin and I both caught tadpoles from the same pond and took 
them home.  I put mine in water with a pebble beach.  He put his 
in a tub of water with no beach.  Mine turned into frogs.  HIs 
never did. Could it be that they knew there was no way to get air 
once they turned into air breathing animals, so they didn't 
change?
