The amnion, one of these extraembryonic membranes, creates a sac that fills with fluid and provides a watery environment in which the embryo develops. They can "see" warm-blooded prey, such as a rat or mouse, in pitch dark. Arthropods cover the arachnids, like spiders, tarantulas, scorpions and whip scorpions: myriapods containing centipedes and millipedes; and other land invertebrates.

They are most closely related to the caecilians, little-known legless amphibians (Figure below and Figure below ). Cut out frog shapes and talk about how poisonous frogs are brightly colored. Plus, when you buy a reptile from us (or any live animal for that matter), you can trust it will safely be delivered right to your doorstep. Lissamphibians (which include frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and rare, earthworm-like amphibians called "caecilians") are believed to have radiated from a common ancestor that lived in the middle Permian or early Triassic periods, and it's unclear what relationship this common ancestor may have had to late Carboniferous amphibians like Eryops and Eogyrinus. (It's possible that modern lissamphibians branched off from the late Carboniferous Amphibamus, but not everyone subscribes to this theory.) The Two Types of Prehistoric Amphibians: Lepospondyls and Temnospondyls As a general (though not very scientific) rule, the amphibians of the Carboniferous and Permian periods can be divided into two camps: small and weird-looking (the lepospondyls), and big and reptile-like (the temnospondyls).

Only a small percentage of the snakes on the Preserve are actually poisonous—including the broad-banded copperhead, the Western diamondback rattlesnake, and the Texas coral snake. Their skin is covered with scales or plates. In order to absorb oxygen from the water, fish use gills (Figure below ). As you probably already know, our scaly friends need to be provided with warm and cool areas within their enclosures in order to allow them to regulate their body temperature as they would in their natural habitats.
