Types of Amphibians

The term “amphibian” derives from the Ancient Greek term amphibios, which translates to “both kinds of life,” since amphi means “of both kinds” and bio means “life.” While the term originally was used for all animals that could live on land or in water, it later was restricted to what we now call amphibians. These cold-blooded animals have four limbs, and they can only maintain their body temperatures at the level of their surroundings. There are three types (or orders) of amphibians: Anura, Caudata, and Gymnophiona.

Another Day at the Zoo: Gargoyle Geckos

I often think working at PetSolutions is kind of like working at a zoo. Between the animals we sell and the pets brought in by co-workers for photo shoots or visits, I am exposed to many different types and breeds of animals that make great pets, even if I never considered some of them before. Because of this experience, I want share the different pets I get to see at our “zoo.”
