Living both on land and in water
capable of living both in water and on land, typified by frogs, toads, and salamanders.
This refers to a class of animals that spend part of their time on land and part in the water; they are an intermediate form between fishes and reptiles. Members of this class include frogs, toads, and salamanders.
An aeroplane designed for taking off from and alighting on both land and water. Examples: Supermarine Walrus, Grumman Goose, Consolidated Canso.
vertebrates able to exploit both aquatic and terrestrial environments (from the Greek amphibios "living a double life")
A class of vertebrate trtrapod. The majority return to water to lay eggs. Living examples include frogs and salamanders.
Aircraft capable of routinely operating from both water and land
Members of a class of cold-blooded vertebrates who are aquatic in the larval stage, and breathe air as adults. Frogs, toads, and newts are examples of amphibians.
One of the class of animals that are cold-blooded and have no scales. Amphibians usually live in or near the water.
An animal that can live in both air and water. Amphibians can breath air with their lungs and can absorb oxygen through their skin.
a flat-bottomed motor vehicle that can travel on land or water
an airplane designed to take off and land on water
cold-blooded vertebrate typically living on land but breeding in water; aquatic larvae undergo metamorphosis into adult form
relating to or characteristic of animals of the class Amphibia
a lifeform of a varity of cold- blooded vertebrates
an organism, such as a frog, toad, salamander, or some types of newts, having an aquatic early stage (e
'Double Life'. A creature that can live in both water and on land
Member of the class amphibia. Amphibians are characterized by having two distictive life stages. An aquatic larval stage as a tadpole, and an adult, often terrestial, stage. Amphibians also have porous un-scaled skin.
A group of vertebrates whose reproductive biology is closely tied to water. Includes frogs, toads, newts and salamanders
Cold-blooded, smooth-skinned animals from the Chordate Phylum. This class of animals includes frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. Some live on land and some in the water, but most species return to the water to mate and lay eggs.
am-fib-ee-an Vertebrate with moist skin (e.g. frog)
Animals like frogs that live in water as babies and on land as adults
Animals that spend part of their life-cycle on land and part in water
animals with a backbone that live both in water and on land at different stages of their lives. They have an aquatic larval stage during which they breathe with gills followed by an adult stage that lives on land and has lungs to breathe.
a type of animal that can live on land and in the water. It is cold-blooded and can breathe through its skin or lungs.
an animal that has skin, a backbone and is cold-blooded (Most amphibians lay eggs and go through a larval stage such as the tadpoles of a frog.)
Organisms that can leave the water for extended periods of time, but still are required to return to the water to survive. Frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts are all types of amphibians.
a member of the vertebrate class Amphibia, e.g. frog or newt.
Any vertebrate of the class Amphibia: cold-blooded tetrapods that breathe by means of gills in the early stages of life and by means of lungs in the later stages.
An aircraft capable of operating off either land or water.
any cold-blooded animal with vertebrate that can live on land and in water
Animal with smooth, moist skin; it has gills when young and then develops lungs when older. Frogs, toads, and salamanders are amphibians.
(pronounced am-FIB-ee-in) Amphibians (meaning "double life") are vertebrate animals that live in the water during their early life (breathing through gills), but usually live on land as adults (and breathe with lungs). There are three groups (orders) of living amphibians: newts and salamanders (urodeles); frogs and toads (anurans); and caecilians (the worm-like gymnophiones).
An aircraft that can fly off of water or land. The wheels retract into the hull or floats, depending upon the type of aircraft. An amphibian can land on water and then extend the landing gear to allow it to pull up onto the shore. Many seaplane bases had ramps to allow the airplanes to pull up onto dry land parking areas.
An animal that typically lives partially in an aquatic habitat (breathing by gills) as young and primarily in a terrestrial habitat (breathing by lungs and through moist skin) as an adult, e.g. frogs.
The word 'amphibian' is taken from the Greek word amphibia, which means 'two lives'. This is representative of the groups dependence on both aquatic and terrestrial habitat. Amphibians are vertebrate animals whose body temperature is dependent on the temperature of the environment. They have soft skin and no scales. Most have limbs that are digitized. The eggs that amphibians lay are shell-less and must be deposited in humid environments to avoid desiccation.
a cold-blooded vertebrate animal that usually spends the first stage in their life cycle in water, and the second stage on land
Any cold-blooded vertebrate of the class Amphibia, comprising frogs and toads, newts and salamanders, and caecilians, the larvae being typically aquatic, breathing by gills, and the adults being typically semiterrestrial, breathing by lungs and through the moist, glandular skin.
a cold-blooded, smooth-skinned vertebrate of the class Amphibia, such as a frog or salamander, that characteristically hatches as an aquatic larva with gills.
An ancient animal without scales, adapted for life both in water and on land. Examples are frogs, newts, and salamanders.
Any of a class of vertebrates that regulate their body temperature externally; lay shell-less eggs in wet areas; live in water during early development and live both in water and on land as adults; and use lungs, gills and their skin for breathing. Most have four legs and smooth, moist skin without scales.
The group of animals that frogs, newts, toads and salamanders belong to and that evolved early in the Devonian Age. They generally live in or near water, and need water for reproduction. Their eggs appear to be blobs of jelly, and when their offspring hatch they are very different from the adults (tadpoles for example). the young may have to go through many stages of metamorphosis before they are adults themselves. Their skin is thin and they can even breathe through it.
A cold-blooded, four-footed vertebrate belonging to a class midway in the development of fish of reptiles [LCOTE
An aircraft capable of operating from land and water, and of transferring from one to the other
an amphibious organism; especially : any of a class (Amphibia) of cold-blooded vertebrates (as frogs, toads, or salamanders) intermediate in many characters between fishes and reptiles and having gilled aquatic larvae and air-breathing adults.
A cold-blooded animal that lives part of its life in the water and part of its live on land.
Any of the cold blooded, moist skinned members of the class Amphibia. Represented in the BWCA by six species of salamander, seven frogs, and one toad.
Amphibians (class Amphibia; from Greek Î±Î¼Ï†Î¹Ï‚ "both" and Î²Î¹Î¿Ï‚ "life") are a taxon of animals that include all living tetrapods (four-legged vertebrates) that do not have amniotic eggs, are ectotherms, and generally spend part of their time on land. Most amphibians do not have the adaptations to an entirely terrestrial existence found in most other modern tetrapods (amniotes). There are around 6,000 described, living species of amphibians.
