Interesting Facts

> Amphibians (class Amphibia, from Amphi- meaning “on both sides” and -bios meaning “life”), are a class of vertebrate animals including animals such as frogs, caecilians, and salamanders. They are characterized as non-amniote ectothermic (or cold-blooded) tetrapods.

> Reptiles (class Reptilia) are members of a class of air-breathing, ectothermic (cold-blooded) vertebrates which are characterized by laying shelled eggs (except for some vipers and constrictor snakes that give live birth), and having skin covered in scales and/or scutes. They are tetrapods, either having four limbs or being descended from four-limbed ancestors. Modern reptiles inhabit every continent with the exception of Antarctica, and four living orders are currently recognized:

Crocodilia (crocodiles, gavials, caimans, and alligators): 23 species
Sphenodontia (tuataras from New Zealand): 2 species
Squamata (lizards, snakes, and worm lizards): approximately 7,900 species
Testudines (turtles, terrapins and tortoises): approximately 300 species
