Resumen: "Diet is an important factor that influences tadpole growth, development, and ultimately metamorphosis. Nevertheless, it has been poorly studied in neotropical tadpoles. We experimentally tested the effect of two diets on growth and metamorphosis of tadpoles of the endemic Yucatan Casque-Headed Treefrog (Triprion petasatus). Individuals raised on a high-quality commercial fish diet experienced increased growth, a short larval period, low mortality, and large size at metamorphosis and as juveniles"
