To Amphibians and Beyond!
Caecilians are limbless, burrowing amphibians. All are blind and worm-like. 160 species are known.

Salamander/Newt Reproductive System
Male Salamders have testis, mullerian duct, wolffian duct, and a cloaca.
Female salamanders have ovaries, oviducts, wolffian duct, and a cloaca.
The “Sperm packet” is deposited by male in water and taken up by female for internal fertilization.
Salamanders can either lay eggs or the eggs can development within the female for anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 years.
The male salamander seeks out female and wafts glandular secretions toward her by fanning of his tail.

Caecilians Digestve System
- the esophagus and the mouth are lined with cilia that sweep small food particles into the stomach
- the intestine opens into a cloaca, a chamber into which the digestive system empties, a ventral outfolding of the cloaca gives rise to the urinary bladder.
-teeth are located on the jaws and on the roof of the mouth.
- some species have lungs but some
use use their skin or mouth to
- have a 3-chambered heart a right
atrium, a left atrium and a single
- have long kidneys extending most of the length of their body cavity. They have well developed
capillary nets in the interior of the kidney.
-are found in
or anywhere that is close to any body of water except saltwater.
- the first fossil a vertebra dated back Paleocene area wasn't discovered until 1972. The earliest fossil known dates by to the Jurassic period, its primitive genus is Eocaecilia.
