Smilisca baudinii (eaten here and a froglet here) is one of two hylid tadpoles that are being reared (Hyla microcephala is the other). The tadpoles are medium-sized, with a broad tail and they are somewhat light in color, especially compared to the bufonids. The mouth is similar to that of the other tadpole species here in that it has 2/3 denticles (with the second anterior denticle medially broken) and a prominent beak; however, the large, complete oral disk is completely surrounded by many rows of papillae; some of the other tadpoles have gaps in the papillae surrounding the oral disk. Additionally, the toe pads are visible on the budding feet of the tadpoles, which is a good indicator that this is a hylid.
