You can download select species by searching or when you're on a Taxa page like Class, Order, and Family. Adults are about 2 - 3 inches long, not including the tail. Some estimates suggest that up to 90% of the species then living became extinct. (Recent research has suggested that this event, like the better-known end-Cretaceous event, was caused by the impact of an asteroid.) During the subsequent Triassic period (248 - 213 million years ago), the survivors of that event radiated into the large number of now-vacant ecological niches.

There are three orders: Amphibian larvae are born and live in water, and they breathe using gills. Our successful ongoing campaign on behalf of the nation’s turtles has prompted several states to regulate turtle harvest and led to restrictions on the international turtle trade, important steps toward reversing their alarming declines. Adults are about 3 to 5 inches long, not including the tail. Ubiquitous toxins, global warming, nonnative predators, overcollection, habitat destruction and disease are key factors leading to their demise.

Boyer has practiced dog and cat medicine, as well as exotic animal medicine, for over 20 years. There are several species of Cryptosporidium, but the most commonly encountered in reptiles is C. serpentis. The resulting young, known as tadpoles - which at first look like legless blobs with tails - are aquatic and have feathery, external gills, but soon develop lungs and legs and leave the water. Reptiles begin their lives on land, whereas Amphibians begin their lives in water.

Click the links below to learn about salmonellosis and some other zoonotic diseases of reptiles and amphibians. All snakes are meat-eaters, and are different from legless lizards because they do NOT have eyelids, limbs, external ears, or forelimbs. However, the only amphibians native to Britain are frogs, toads and newts - two species of frog (there are another two species but these have been introduced from the Continent), two species of toad and three species of newt.

Most reptiles can naturally swim but do not enter water as readily as amphibians do. If your thermometer placement is correct and it is still reading too cool for the species that you are keeping, it’s time to get a higher wattage heat bulb or add a secondary heat source.

New York: Oxford University Press, 1997. The evidence for this lies in the way their cells function. They retain many characters of their therapsid ancestors, such as laying eggs, limbs oriented with humerus and femur held lateral to body (more lizard-like), a cloaca, skulls with an almost birdlike appearance, and a lack of teeth in adults. This small species, which resembles an earthworm, lives permanently underground in sandy regions.

Offering a live rodent to a captive snake in a small cage can be very different from a snake or a monitor ambushing and overcoming a rodent in the wild. The smallest reptile is thought to be the mini chameleon from Madagascar which only grows to just over an inch in length.

Juveniles have distinct stripes and bright blue tails.

Very few amphibians have scale-like skin. Of course, as pollution levels increase, eventually other kinds of animals, even humans, are sure to suffer similar fates... Labat, de l'ordre des freres prêcheurs. (1742). I have been working in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park’s Biodiversity Reserve (a 900-acre area adjacent to the Safari Park) for 15 years studying the reptile and amphibian species that call it home.
