Overview

What makes an amphibian an amphibian? How is a frog different from a toad? What is a mudpuppy? Classifying Living Things investigates how and why we group animals. Each book focuses on a particular class of living things, looking at the key characteristics that set its members apart from those of other classes. Discover how classes of living things have evolved, and how species have adapted to suit their environments. Find out why certain animals may show some characteristics of a particular class, but actually belong to another. 'Classifying Amphibians' looks at the amazing animals that lead a double life. Find out how amphibians are grouped into orders and how each one is different from the rest. From hellbenders to tree frogs, from giant goliath frogs to tiny tadpoles, discover what makes amphibians so special.
