Despite an enormous amount of information on the biochemical and physiological changes of amphibian metamorphosis, information about the general anatomy of anuran larvae is not readily available. The present study is a comparison of the general morphological changes during metamorphic climax of three anuran species belonging to three different families. This anatomical information is designed to assist those wishing to correlate cellular and chemical events with the corresponding morphological events.
