Amphibians in General

Like birds, reptiles, mammals, and fishes, amphibians are vertebrates –- that is, creatures with a backbone and an internal skeleton. Amphibians live part of their life in water and part on land. Even those species that lay eggs on land start life in a fluid-filled egg, breathing through gills.

All adult amphibians are meat eaters, or carnivores. They actively search for other animals—usually insects—to eat. Larval salamanders are also meat eaters. Most larval frogs are plant eaters, or vegetarians, although a few eat both plants and small animals
