    although amphibians were the first vertebrates to live on land, they were _____. boundaries the transition from water to land required animals to surmount several ________.(the most critical were desiccation, reproduction, the effects of gravity, using lungs for oxygen rather than gills. Giant salamander-like labyrinthodont amphibian from the Triassic period which lived in lakes in the Sydney basin. A complete fossil skeleton was found in the St Peters brick pits in and is now in the Natural History Museum, London.

      Answer is labyrinthodont. About million years ago, labyrinthodonts (maze-toothed), a group of extinct were evolved from lobed-finned fish in the Devonian period. They were dominant animals in the rift valley was present at that time between Antarctica and Australia. -Reptiles and amphibians. Reptiles and mammals.

This beautifully illustrated guide describes their taxonomy, size, appearance, habits. Amphibians are interesting animals. They spend a good part of their life in or near water but unlike fish, they breathe with lungs instead of gills. Amphibians have to stay close to water because their eggs need to stay wet to survive.
