and toads are all amphibians. The word "amphibian" is
derived from the Greek word amphibios, which means "living
a double life."
The majority of amphibians complete the first part of their life
cycle in the water and then move onto land as adults. Although
the species in this group are incredibly diverse in shape and
color, amphibians make up the smallest class of living vertebrates.
The skin of amphibians is most often smooth and slimy.
