6Frogs spend most of their life on land, but lay their eggs in water. Frog eggs are larvae in gilatinous-like clear eggs that need moisture so as not to dry out.
7Frogs are distinct from other animals in the respect that they live “two lives”...they go through... METAMORPHASIS… where tadpoles develop a tail, live in water and eat algae, then grow fully into frogs, develop actual legs and move onto land
9Caecilian ancestors had legs, but present day caecilians have no legs and are almost blindMost live in burrows in tropicalclimates and some burrow intosoil on bottom of water
10General Interesting Pointers Amphibians’ hearts have three chambersAcid rain and decline in rainforests threaten amphibians because they need to live in moist, wet environmentsAmphibians breathe not not only through lungs, but across their skin as wellMost amphibians excrete "urea“ which is highly soluble in water and can be disposed with considerably little water loss
