Xenopus laevis tadpoles are extensively utilised in scientific research within a number of biological disciplines, but little work has been carried out concerning their behavioural capabilities and their flexibility to different environmental conditions. This has resulted in a near complete lack of data upon which to base recommendations for laboratory maintenance. This thesis aimed to address this problem by investigating the growth, development and behaviour of the tadpoles under a variety of different housing conditions.
