Predator Induced Red Tail in Treefrog Tadpole

Gray Treefrog Tadpoles develop red tails when they smell predators. The tadpole on top grew up in an environment with predators, and so developed a red tail. The tadpole on bottom grew up in an environment without predators, and so does not have the conspicuous red tail.
