The cross-bearers who went on the long journey to the Middle East from France, England, Germany and Italy knew little of the kind of people they were going to meet there. All they knew was that they were going to try to take sacred territory from the hands of “the Infidels”, “unbelievers” whose God and Prophet were different from their own. After once making contact with the East, the crusaders were surprised to find there a highly developed culture which was not only much older than Europe’s but in many ways quite superior.

Islam and Christianity had many things in common – most importantly, a belief in one God. The Islamic codes of morality and hospitality deeply impressed the men from the West.

For a long time, amphibians were confused with reptiles. Like reptiles, they have three-chambered hearts and are cold-blooded. Some amphibians, such as salamanders, are even shaped like lizards. However, unlike reptiles, amphibians never have claws on their toes or scales on their bodies. Furthermore, the eggs of amphibians lack shells, so they must be laid in water or moist places.

Amphibians were the first creatures to spend sizable amounts of their lives on land. The larvae of most amphibians, such as frog tadpole are bom with gills and live in water. However, their gills disappear as they develop lungs. Most retain the ability to breathe through the moist surface of their skin. This comes in handy when they hibernate in the bottom mud of lakes and ponds during the coldest months. They take in the small amount of oxygen they need through their skin. Some amphibians undergo what is known as a ‘double metamorphosis’ changing not only from gill breathers to lung breathers but also from vegetarians to insectivores.

Although the amphibian class is rather small in number of species, it shows great diversity. There are three major types. The caecilians of the tropics are long, legless burrowing creatures. Caudate amphibians, such as newts and salamanders, mostly have long tails and stubby legs. Salientians, which include both frogs and toads, are tailless as adults and have powerful hind legs. Toads differ from frogs primarily in that they have dry, warty skin.
