Amphibians belong to the class Amphibia. This class includes frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. Amphibians represent the transition between life in water and life on land. They first evolved the amniotic egg - which is protected by fluids and membranes - that can be laid on land, though most of the time it still needs to be a very wet environment. Amphibians are currently not on exhibit at the zoo because a special and unique habitat complex is being designed for them. It is estimated that there are a little over 6,000 species of amphibians on Earth though the changing climate is severly threatening their numbers. Check back soon for more extensive information on this subject.
