Reptiles and Amphibians

Producer: Films for the Humanities and Sciences

Reptiles and amphibians are important in the evolutionary history of life because they bridged the gap between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. This program deals with reptilian physiology and behaviour and with the natural history of amphibians - amazing semi-aquatic creatures that can even withstand total freezing. It also broaches the fascinating yet unresolved question of the extinction of the dinosaurs.
