By Marlon Votta - Aug 5, 2011

There are many things children and adults can learn about these cold-blooded creatures. Reptiles and amphibians are two different types of animals; the major differences are that reptiles live on land, in water, or both on land and in water. However, all amphibians are born in water and spend early part of their lives in water in form of larvae. The adults usually live on land; however, some may live on land as well as in water. Additionally all amphibians breathe through opening in their skins and mouth. Reptiles include four groups of animals – lizards and snakes, turtles, crocodiles, and tuatara. Amphibians include three groups of animals – frogs and toads, salamanders and caecilians. Snakes obviously have no legs, no visible ear, slow metabolism and sometimes constrict prey. We thought it would be a good idea to let you in on some educational apps on these amazing animals available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
