Amphibians

7th Grade Life science


Amphibian characteristics
Amphibian Characteristics

  • From greek amphibios = double life

  • Ectotherms --Hibernation & Estivation

  • Moist smooth skin

  • 3 chambered heart as adults


Animal kingdom

Chordate Phylum

Subphylum

Vertebrata

Class

Amphibians

Order = Caecillians

Order = Anura

Frogs and Toads

Order = Caudata

(salamanders)





Frog life cycle
Frog Life Cycle

Metamorphosis

Meta = change / Morph = shape


Differences between frogs and toads

Frogs

Highly permeable skin that generally needs to stay very moist.

Toads

Have thicker skin and are better adapted to life away from water.

Differences between Frogs and Toads




Frog anatomy
Frog Anatomy

Nictitating

Membrane

Tympanic

Membrane

Dark Camouflaged Back


External anatomy
External Anatomy

  • Nictitating membrane--clear eyelid

  • Tympanic Membrane-- separates the outer environment from the inner ear.

  • Dark camouflage coloration


Mouth anatomy
Mouth Anatomy

Maxillary Teeth

Tongue

Gullet

Mandible


Digestive tract
Digestive Tract

  • Mouth --> Pharynx --> Stomach --> Small Intestine --> Large Intestine --Cloaca

  • Small Intestine--nutrient absorption and digestion

  • Large Intestine--digests bacteria, reabsorbs water and forms feces

  • Liver--produces bile for digestion

  • Gall Bladder--stores liver bile


Ventral anatomy

Liver

Circulatory system
Circulatory System

  • 3 chambered heart (left/right atrium; ventricle)

  • Veins = Oxygen poor blood

    Artery = Oxygen rich blood

Right Atrium

Ventricle

Left Atrium
