What is an amphibian?

Amphibians start life in ponds as eggs then hatch into tadpoles or larvae using gills to breathe. When lungs are developed, they can leave the pond and breathe through their smooth skin (no fur, feathers or scales!). The change from egg to tadpole or larvae to an adult is known as metamorphosis. Amphibians need wetlands but also good habitat on land since they are both aquatic and terrestrial.
