modern amphibians arose more than 210 million years ago in the Triassic from an earlier group of amphibians known as lepospondyls.

The largest living amphibian is the Chinese giant salamander (Andrias davidianus); one specimen caught in Guizhou Province, China, in 1923 measured 5 feet 9 inches along the curve of its body. The largest frog is the rare Goliath frog (Conrauagoliath) from Central Africa, which has been measured to an overall length, with legs extended, of 34.5 inches.

Of the six mystery amphibians listed here, three are frogs, one is a salamander, and two are possible caecilians (wormlike, legless animals that burrow into the soil in the tropics).
