Nope, salamanders aren’t lizards—surprisingly, they aren’t even reptiles. They’re amphibians.
It’s understandable to mistake the slender, long-tailed, little-legged creatures for lizards, but they’re actually closer relatives to frogs. Take a look at them—you can kind of see it! Like frogs and other amphibians, salamander babies have gills and live in the water, then move to moist land as adults. That’s because their adult skin absorbs water but also loses it, so they need constant replenishment.
Lizards (and all reptiles) don’t need to live on moist land. While some are comfortable in the water, they can never breathe it, and their scaly skin prevents water loss.
Some amphibians are : frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts.
There are more amphibians then even humans are aware of. Scientists are still finding new species. There are many species already and depending on the area or type depends where one would find a list.
There are over 6000 extant amphibian species. And note the fossil species too (like Ichthyostega).
There are three groups of amphibians; frogs (including toads) or Anura, caecilians or Gymnophionaand salamanders or Caudata.
No. Polar bears are mammals because they have fur, are warm-blooded and give birth to live young. Amphibians have none of the above traits.
Amphibians include animals such as frogs, caecilians, and salamanders. They are characterized as cold-blooded tetrapods ( four limbs ).Most Amphibians undergo metamorphosis from a juvenile water-breathing form to an adult air-breathing form.
Amphibians are ecological indicators.They live both in the water and on land.
For the purpose of reproduction most amphibians require fresh water.
Since they can live either on land or in water they must have both lungs and gills, or rudimentary gills. They don't have constant body temperature but have moist skin and their temperature is the same as the ambient temperature.
Amphibians, like frogs and salamanders, have moist skin and are ectotherms, meaning their body heat matches the heat of the environment around them. They do not have any scales, and they must live in moist environments for reproductive and respiratory means.

They don't have any scales, and they must live in moist environments for reproductive and respiratory means. Amphibians were the first tetrapods.
1.Scales are absent.
2.Gills and lungs are for respiration.
3.They have necessitating membrane.
4.They have three chambered heart.
5.They are cold blooded.
6.They lay eggs.
7.They live either on land or water.
The four characteristics of amphibians are characteristics any animal must have to be classified as an amphibian. These include: the animal must be a vertebrate and have a backbone, the animal spends much of its life in water as well as on land, the animal is cold blooded, and the animal does not have scales but have permeable skin. Animals that are amphibians also go through metamorphosis, as a frog goes from an egg to a tadpole to a frog.
1. Amphibians are cold blooded.
2. Amphibians larvae mature in water and breathe through gills.
3. Adult amphibians breathe through lungs and skin.
4. While adult amphibians spend part of their time on land, they still need to spend time in water due to the scaleless, moist nature of their skin. Without a water source they would become dehydrated and die.
There are many characteristics of a amphibians. The most common include being cold-blooded, having a back bone and live on both water and land.
2) Amphibians are cold-blooded or exothermic animals. Unlike warm-blooded animals, which regulate their body temperature internally, amphibians derive heat from outside their body.
3) The skin is smooth, thin, hairless, porous and rarely scaled. The skin contains both mucus glands and poison glands.
4) A bone endoskeleton with varying numbers of vertebrae; ribs present in some, absent or fused to vertebrae in others.
5) A smooth, thin, porous skin containing both mucus glands and poison glands.
6) Four limbs which may vary in size with the forelimbs of some being much smaller than the hind limbs; some are legless.
7) Limbs have varying numbers of digits and webbed feet are often present; no true nails or claws.
8) The mouth is usually large with small teeth in upper or both jaws; two nostrils open into the anterior part of the mouth cavity.
9) Respiration is accomplished either separately or in combination by lungs, skin, and gills; some larval types possess external gills and these may persist throughout life.
10) A three-chambered heart consisting of two atria and one ventricle.
1, can live under water breathing through skin.
2, adult can live on land as they have lungs.
3, moist soft skin.
4,eggs laid in water.
They are, in fact, very similar to Frog Spawn and are generally laid upon plants. They look like Brown/Black 'dots' coated with a clear membrane - though a lack of pigment in the egg would suggest that one parent was an Albino Axolotl. Sometimes, though, pigment appears later in the development.
Reptiles and and amphibians are two different types of animals. though there are many similarities between these two types of animals. Major difference between reptiles and amphibians include the following.
The above is not strictly correct. Adult amphibians breathe using lungs. One of the main differences between amphibians and reptiles is that juvenile amphibians undergo metamorphosis, during which they change from using gills for respiration to using lungs.
Another major difference is that reptiles have scaly skin, while amphibians have moist skin, not scaly.
amphibians have dual life ... water and land while reptiles don't have
All amphibians start life in the water, and all reptiles start life on land. (short answer)
The primary difference is in the egg, reptiles lay thick shelled eggs that have an amnion protecting the embryo, this difference of having an amnion sharply separates reptiles, birds, and mammals from fish and amphibians.
Reptiles also have thick skin while amphibians have thin skin.
Reptiles sometimes have scales and amphibians usually have smooth skin, but some reptiles (particularly Crocodylians) do not have true scales, and some amphibians (particularly toads) have rough, warty skin.
An anfibian can live in water and on land. a reptile can't
Amphibians develop in water, and reptiles do not. Reptiles have scutes wich amphibians lack.
Reptiles have scales and Amphibians have smooth skin.
An animal is classed as a reptile if it:
Lays hard eggs instead of live young;
Doesn't suckle its young.
Lives both on land and in water;
Lays soft eggs;
Has soft, damp skin.
The differences being the skin texture, habits and the eggs.
Reptiles have scales and Amphibians have smooth skin.
The difference between reptiles and amphibians is that reptiles have rough skin and amphibians have slimmy slippery skin.Reptiles are also different from amphibians because reptiles were here longer than amphibians.
amphibians have smooth and moist skin however reptiles have dry and scaly scales.
Reptiles begin their lives on land, whereas Amphibians begin their lives in water.
Amphibians are able to go both in water and land but reptiles stick to land
Amphibians can breathe under water while reptiles can't, I'm not for sure about this but that's my guess.
they aren't in the same group.
Reptiles and amphibians belong to the same Kingdom (Animalia) and Phylum (Chordata) but are different Classes altogether.
Reptiles most likely evolved from amphibians some 300 million years ago. They live on land, mostly, and breath air with lungs, though things like sea-snakes and alligators (Reptiles) do live in water. Reptiles lay eggs with a tough shell.
Amphibians are more water-dependent, and usually lay their eggs in water. Examples are frogs and salamanders.
Also, reptiles have scales. Very few amphibians have scale-like skin.
Although they share common ancestry (we all do, actually, all life on earth...), they are different groups of animals!
amphibians and reptiles are both same but the difference are amphibians spend thier time on water when they are young and when they are growing older spend thier time on land while reptiles thier bodies are covered with scale or plates
Reptiles and amphibians are rather different. Reptiles have dry, scaly skin, breathe through lungs, and are often found on land. In contrast, amphibians have scaleless, often slimy skin, are found in water before moving to land, and often can breathe without the use of lungs, or don't even have lungs.
Amphibians breathe through their skin and live on both land and in water. Reptiles have scaly skin and live mostly on land except for exceptions such as crocodiles, turtles and iguanas.
The difference between an amphibian and a reptile are the following:
nowhere iknow of sells hem, you'll have to make one, there are patterns on the internet
The largest living amphibian is the Chinese Giant Salamander (Andrias davidianus). The maximum size of this river-dweller is 64 kg (140 lb) and 1.83 m (6 ft). Before aminotes became the dominant tetrapods, several giant amphibian-like tetrapods existed. The largest known was the crocodile-like Prionosuchus, which reached a length of 9 m (30 ft). Frogs (Anura). Easily the largest member of the largest order of amphibians is the African Goliath frog (Conraua goliath). The maximum size of this species is a weight of 3.8 kg (8.4 lb) and a snout-to-vent length of 35 cm (14 in). The largest of the toads is the Cane Toad. Caecilian (Gymnophiana). The largest of the worm-like caecilians is the Thomson's Caecilian (Caecilia thompsoni), which reaches a length of 1.5 m (5 ft) and can weigh up to about 1 kg (2.2 lb).
The largest amphibian in the world is the Chinese Giant Salamander (Andrias davidianus). They can grow as long as 180 cm (6 ft), although it is rare that they get that large nowadays, with normal specimens around 1.15 m (3.8 ft) in length.
The second-largest amphibian in the world is the Japanese Giant Salamander (Andrias japonicus), a very close relative of the Chinese Giant Salamander. This species can reach as large as 1.5 meters (5 ft).
The Chinese giant salamander is the largest amphibian in the world. They can weigh up to 65 pounds and nearly 6 feet in length.
It's amphibian. And its the Japanese Giant Salamander.
The largest amphibian in the world is the Chinese Giant Salamander (Andrias davidianus)
No, this isn't a good idea. The betta might nibble the axolotl's delicate gills, and a big axolotl could swallow a betta, but the most obvious reason why the two are incompatible is that they prefer very different water temperatures. Bettas are tropical fish that require relatively high temperatures of 25-30 degrees Celsius, whereas axolotls prefer their water cooler, around 15 degrees.
Skin is the body covering of amphibians. It is made up of the epidermis and the dermis. Mucus, other glands and a pigment layer are present in the dermis. The epidermis is stratified. The skin is permeable which means that it allows oxygen and water to pass. Some amphibians are able to peform up to 50% respiration through their skin. Their skin also makes them more susceptible to changes in their local ecosystem like pollutants.
They Also Feel Soft Sometimes!
Some reptiles include the following:
Some extinct species of reptiles include dinosaurs and pterosaurs. Amphibians include the following animals:
Because their skin doesn't grow with them like ours does. Periodically, they need to slough (shed) their old skin in order for their body to grow.
Amphibians do not have scales on their body and possess a slimy skin.
All amphibians have a covering of moist skin. They do not have scaly skin or warty skin: they have moist skin.
Amphibians are covered in skin with a protective mucous layer. The mucous can sometimes have poison. Other amphibians can breathe through their skin.
very thin skin, because amphibians can actually breathe through their skin and extract oxygen.
The skin of amphibians is thin and membranous, it consist basically of the same material as the human skin, but thinner.
lung, skin and gills.
by dinesh singh bhadouria
they're both cold blooded
well they are vertebrates, also they both- besides the crocodile- have three chamber hearts.
That they both lay eggs and also they both don't have paws or hooves
Amphibians are four-legged, cold-blooded vertebrates who generally spend part of their time on land. Their skin must be kept moist, so they live close to water. Amphibians do have lungs, but are also able to "breath" through their skin. They do not have amniotic eggs. Amniotic means that the sac that the embryo is in is not filled with serous fluid.
An amphibian starts its life as an aquatic animal, breathing under water. It changes, develops legs and the ability to breathe out of the water. By that time it looks like a small version of the terrestrial/land dwelling form of the amphibian.
Not all amphibians have slippery skin, are slimy and have webbed feet. For example California newts have a rough texture to their skin and their skin is dry.
they have eggs that are couverd in jelly ie. frogspawn
their young can't go on land eg. tadpoles
Amphibians live on both land and water. The examples are frog, toads, salamanders and newts etc. Some reptiles like alligators and crocodiles also live on land and in the water.
I wish they could
An amphibian is cold blooded, which means it gets its body temperature from it's environment.
They are all freshwater- there are no saltwater amphibians.
French also uses the Nahuatl word axolotl to describe it.
Amphibians are creatures which spend part of their life in water and part of their life on dry land.
Amphibians are one of the groups of vertebrates, and are characterized by being cold blooded and having moist skin, through which they can also absorb oxygen. They include frogs, toads, newts, salamanders (including axolotls) and caecilians, which all start their lives as eggs. They hatch out as tadpoles which breathe through gills and a spiracle. As they grow, they develop lungs and legs, and are able to leave the water and walk on land, apart from axolotls.
Amphibians are members of the class Aviva sub phylum Vertebrate phylum Chordate's The class Amphibian includes frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and Cacilia's Amphibians are characterized by a glandular skin without external scales, by gills during development (and in adulthood in some), and by eggs that may have jelly coats but develop without formation of extra embryonic membranes such as the amnion. Most amphibians also have four limbs. Limbs and lungs are adaptations for life on land; the limbs evolved from the ancestral fishes' lobed fins. The scales and amenity egg evolved by reptiles are further adaptations for life on land and distinguish reptiles from amphibians. Amphibians, such as frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, and Guamanian are coldblooded animals that metamorphose from a juvenile, vertebration form to an adult, airbrushing form. Typically, amphibians have four limbs. Unlike other land animals amenities amphibians lay eggs in water, as their fish ancestors did. Amphibians are superficially similar to reptiles. It is a coldblooded vertebrate (it has a backbone) e.g. frog, toad, newt.. A cold blooded animal that spends its life both on water and on land. A vertebrate,eg.frog
An amphibian is a vertebrate, which has a backbone. It lives both on land and in the water. (like frogs, turtles, alligator) an amphibian is an animal that lives near the water such as a frog amphibians are animals that breath from their lungs amphibians are animals that are cold blooded and can only survive in wet condition and moist conditions.
Frogs lay a lot of eggs because most of them will not survive. Some of the eggs will never develop and others will end up food for other animals. Out of the hundreds of eggs, only a fraction will make it to an adult frog.
