Life as an Amphibian. The typical life cycle of amphibians is a larval stage that lasts a few months, followed by a brief metamorphic period, then a long, multiyear life on land. The adults return to the water to court and ultimately lay eggs. However, there are many exceptions.What are the three main groups of amphibians?

Their hind legs are long and strong.What is the difference between fish and amphibians?
