Reptiles and Amphibians School Assemblies


People say “Reptiles and Amphibians,” as though they were the same types of animals, but they are as different from each other as birds are from mammals. The Reptiles, get most of the attention; very few people know anything about Amphibians besides that they include frogs.

We’d like to change that, through a program of equal time, the Reptiles and Amphibians School Assemblies !

Do you know what this? NO? That’s okay, because it doesn’t exist. It’s an alligator with a frog’s skin. Completely fictitious, we know, we made it! We’re not just trying to give you a headache. People say “reptiles and amphibians,” so often many have come to believe they are the same thing. Or they have confused “amphibian,” an animal group with a two part life cycle that includes frogs; with “amphibious,” which simply means water going.–What do you think of our creation? Amazing what modern photo manipulation can do! —So Reptiles and Amphibians School Assemblies does NOT include one of these!

The frogs are Amphibians, yes; but so are newts, salamanders and toads. They make up a group of animals that live all over the world, that everyone can recognize, most find interesting to watch or even beautiful to see but could name few species and tell little of their amazing lives.

Frogs and Toads are favorite animal of many, but few know their secrets as we do! The Marine Toad is extremely poisonous, (yes, but safe for school!) and the Argentine Horned Frog is a frightening predator to many small animals. We’re lucky to be bigger than it is!

The weird Amphiuma is a salamander but looks more like a snake and hunts more like a shark! The Ribbed Newt is a terror only to the small insects and tiny fish it catches.


 All Amphibians start their lives looking more like fish than frogs and salamanders, but they go through an astounding metamorphosis that alters them permanently. The Amphiuma, (above) is actually the Amphibian equivalent of a shark! The Cane Toad is so poisonous to eat, that venomous snakes will die trying; the Surinam Toad is the only completely aquatic toad and the Ribbed Newt, though a relentless predator of water insects, is just a harmless joy to watch for us!

So hop to it!
Let us show you the Amphibians!

The Blue-Tongued Skink hopes you were frightened by that blue tongue, and the Boa Constrictor is one of the giant snakes from South America. Reptiles and Amphibians School Assemblies cover all your reptile bases for you.

The Reptiles, unlike the Amphibians, are born looking like smaller versions of their parents. Some reptiles, like the Alligators, are included in having the largest size difference between an adult and a baby. The Sulcata Tortoise lives on the edges of the Sahara Desert eating plants that few other animals could.

All these Reptiles show the characteristics of their group. Once this show is over you will never mistake a Reptile for an Amphibian ever again.
