"Who Am I?", Correct Answer to Question 4: Amphibians
Amphibians include frogs, toads, and salamanders.The word amphibian was taken from the Greek "amphi" meaning "double" and "bios" meaning "life" which is quite fitting for the animals known as amphibians. These creatures do live a double life. Emerging from eggs that are usually laid in the water, most amphibians begin their life with gills. They soon lose these gills and metamorphose from a completely aquatic form into a more terrestrial form.To date, there are 22 known species of salamanders, frogs, and toads at Catoctin Mountain Park.
