Amphibian Animals that are capable both on land and water are called AMPHIBIANS. Common examples are toads, salamanders, and frogs. These animals have highly specialized skin that can be used to breathe and also used to absorb water. The word amphibian is derived from the Greek word “amphibious” which means “living a double life”. This explains the life cycle of amphibians. Amphibians are cold-blooded animals.

They cannot survive under certain conditions. Their skin glands can also produce proteins, and transport important chemicals. If exposed to harsh conditions, such as too much wind, their skin becomes dry and they can become dehydrated. If exposed to too much sunlight, their skin can become damaged.

Amphibians are the only animals on earth that can live in both land and water. This is the type of cold-blooded vertebrate animal, which means that it will have some trouble in regulating its temperature. This also explains why they still need to leave near the water even though they can also live when they are on land. Some examples of amphibians are the following:

newts, salamanders, toads, and frogs. The adult amphibians usually have some aquatic gills that they will have when they reach their adult stage. The skin of amphibians is considered to be very thin. They have some special glands that will also produce the proteins that they may need.

The correct answer to this question is amphibian. They are regarded as fascinating animals on Earth. Examples of amphibians include salamanders, worms, toads, and newts. Their skin is permeable, which allows water and air to pass through. However, to do so, the skin but be moist. Being that their skin must be moist, they are never that far away from water.

Amphibians have been around for over 350 million years. Their lives begin under water, but when they grow lungs, they are then able to move on land. Amphibians are cold-blooded because of their body temperature changes when the air and water temperature changes.
