  3. 3. World of amphibians   What Makes an amphibians?   Amphibians are animals that live part of their lives in water and part on land.  They usually have soft, moist skin that is protected by a slippery layer of mucus. They also tend to live in moist places or near water to keep their bodies from drying out. There are three main groups of amphibians: caecilians; salamanders, newts, and mudpuppies; and frogs and toads.
  4. 4. Frogs Frogs are amphibians, which comes from the Greek language and means "both lives." Most frogs are born in water as tadpoles and gradually change into frogs although some frogs, known as direct developers, are born as full frogs. This allows them to be born and live far away from water, such as on mountaintops.
  5. 5. The Galapagos Giant Tortoise The Galapagos Giant Tortoise is the world's largest land tortoise. They almost went into extinction because people captured them for food, and because they were attached by other animals people brought to the island. The Galapagos Giant Tortoise lives only on the Galapagos Islands. Their staple food is grass and cactus, but they also eat fruits.
  6. 6. Hippo Hippopotamuses love water, which is why the Greeks named them the "river horse." Hippos spend up to 16 hours a day submerged in rivers and lakes to keep their massive bodies cool under the hot African sun. Hippos are graceful in water, good swimmers, and can hold their breath underwater for up to five minutes.
  7. 7. Sea Lion Sea Lion are found in all climates, in both the north and southern hemispheres and every ocean with the exception of the Atlantic Ocean. The sea lion generally lives in coastal ares where there is a good food supply and land close by for the sea lion to have a rest from swimming and hunting in the water. The sea lion has 4 flippers which the sea lion is able to turn around when on solid ground, allowing the sea lion to walk on land.
  8. 8. Crocodile Crocodile, the largest of living reptiles found throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Crocodiles live near swamps and marshes. They spend much of their time basking in the sun. The crocodile has a heavy tail, short legs, and webbed hind feet.
