Amphibians

Australian amphibians are a diverse group of animals that are native to the continent of Australia and the surrounding islands. These animals are characterized by their ability to live both on land and in water, as they undergo a process called metamorphosis during their lifecycle. There are over 200 species of Australian amphibians, including frogs, toads, and salamanders. Many of these species are found in a wide range of habitats, including forests, deserts, and grasslands. Some Australian amphibians are adapted to survive in extreme conditions, such as dry, hot deserts or cold, alpine environments. These animals play important roles in their ecosystems, serving as both predators and prey and helping to control the populations of other organisms. Despite their ecological importance, many Australian amphibian species are threatened by habitat loss, pollution, and introduced predators.
