Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.

Amphibians are frogs, toads, newts, salamanders and caecilians.
Caecilians are worm-like and live underground in South America, South Asia and Africa. Because they live underground, scientists don't much about their diet or other habits.
There are approximately 6500 species of amphibians and many are listed as endangered. In the last few decades, some amphibians have become extinct. Keeping water clean is important and will help amphibians and other wild life.
This gray tree frog was found near the fountain in our yard.
