Amphibians   

1     Amphibians are cold-blooded animals with moist skin. Frogs and toads are amphibians.
 
2     Amphibians do not have hair, feathers, or claws. The word "amphibian" comes from the Greek. It means "living a double life." That is, amphibians have two stages of life. Most amphibians start their lives in water. When the young grow up, most of them live on land.
 
3     Amphibians can be divided into three groups. There are the frogs and toads in one group. Salamanders and newts are another. The last group is the caecilians [pronounced see-SIL-ee-uhns]. Scientists have found over 4,000 species of amphibians. About 3,500 species are frogs and toads.
