The background color preferences of three age groups of Xenopus laevis tadpoles (young-stages tadpoles [stages 44-46], premetamorphic tadpoles [stages 54-56], and metamorphic tadpoles [stages 58-60]) were examined. Young tadpoles selected a white background, metamorphic tadpoles preferred a black background, and premetamorphic tadpoles selected a white or black background consistent with the background black or white of the test box on which they previously were conditioned. If premetamorphic… CONTINUE READING
