Publisher Comments:

Discover the world of frogs, toads, newts and salamanders — their natural history, habitats, and fascinating life cycles. Frogs, toads, newts, salamanders, and the rare caecilians come in a stunning array of colors, shapes, sizes, and habitats. They live both is water and on land and move in a great variety of ways, from swimming, to hopping, and even flying. With a series of specially commissioned photographs, Eyewitness Amphibian looks in close-up at the fascinating natural world of these remarkable creatures, from bright green red-eyed treefrogs to dull, burrowing, wormlike caecilians; from startling black and yellow fire salamanders to tiny, see-through glass frogs. Unique photo-sequences show newt tadpoles developing into adults, and a burrowing frog disappears before your very eyes. A giant ornate horned toad devours a mouse, and a grog leaps across the pages — caught in mid air with tongue outstretched after a tasty meal. See the underwater courtship display of a great crested newt, and watch a salamander eating an earthworm. Full of amazing facts and extraordinary real-life photography, Amphibian is a unique and exciting introduction to the varied world of amphibians.
