Though living amphibians are never very large, in Permian times they grew to great sizes and diversified to fill many ecological niches now filled by large reptiles or mammals.

Today, the best know of the amphibians are the frogs, toads, and salamanders. Due to the damp environment that most amphibians live in, very few are preserved as fossils. Prehistoric amphibians came from fish about million years ago. Around this time, their fins slowly turned into fully formed legs that allowed them to walk on land.

This meant that the earliest amphibians had many fishlike features, including a thick tail with finlike parts at the top and bottom. They also had short, squat limbs. Reptile fossils are fascinating and impressive.
