Abstract：The compositions of amino acids and mineral elements in muscle and skin of Rana spinosa tadpole (weight:0. 8～ 2. 6g), small juvenile Rana spinosa (weight: 9. 0～ 27. 3g ), big juvenile Rana spinosa ( weight:40. 5～ 65. 7g) and adult Rana spinosa (weight: 134. 5～ 213. 0g) were analyzed. The essential amino acidsin muscle acount for 44. 06% of total amino acids. The content of glutamic acid in muscle isconsiderably high, reaching about 15. 65% of total amino acids. In muscle of Rana spinosa there are more than 20 kinds of mineral elements. There is rich trace mineral elements of important physiological function, such as selenium. The content of selenium is 0. 029 mg /100g. On the basis of analysis and comparison, the nutritive value of Rana spinosa was confirmed and the theoretical grounds to develop the coordinating diet of Rana spinosa were provided in this paper.
