Mar 18, 2008Idaho is home to 37 different kinds of amphibians and reptiles. Amphibians were the first land vertebrates. Once the dominate vertebrates on Earth, they are now the smallest class. All Idaho amphibians are considered protected. Why? Why is their life cycle considered unique? What roles do these creatures play in the web of life?
This month on D4K, host Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guest scientists, Adare Evans, Education specialist from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and Eric Leitzinger, a biologist with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game will answer your questions about amphibians.
Students can send their questions through e-mail to D4K@idahoptv.org, fax them in before the show to (208) 373-7245 or call in live during the program to (800) 973-9800. Students who send in a question are eligible to win a DVD player and DVDs for their classroom.
