Artist's Description

Amphibians are a class of animals that have mucous glands in their skin. Their skin has no feathers, scales or hairs. Some of them including the Common Toad have poison glands. Frogs and newts are also amphibians. Amphibians lay their eggs in water where they develop into larvae (tadpoles). Amphibians have to return to water to lay their eggs because the eggs have no shell and therefore no protection against desiccation. In contrast, reptiles and birds have evolved eggs with protective shells, which allow them to lay their eggs on dry land. The tadpoles are aquatic and have gills for breathing in water. They pass through several stages of development, gradually assuming the adult form (a process known as metamorphosis).

In old Fairy Tales Toads and Frogs are Magical beings. That is because long ago all our Waters were animated by feminine Beings, Nymphs Najads and Goddesses. The Trees and Animals that spent their lives in or close to water were part of the Divinity of Water. Frogs and Toads live part of their lives in Water and they are Fertile, laying lots of Eggs. Waterbirds and their Eggs were revered in the same way. Life seemed to come from out of the Waters of the world, also the human Babies!
