Snakes, Toads, Gators and Frogs

God created the animals on the sixth day of creation. Reptiles and amphibians were among the animals created.

Reptiles include animals like snakes, turtles, lizards, alligators and crocodiles.

Some people think snakes are slimy and wet, but most snakes really have dry scales.

Scientists believe that many of the dinosaurs were gigantic reptiles. These reptiles were created by God, but have since become extinct.

Amphibians like the frog begin life in the water, but they live their adult lives on land.

Frogs begin life as tadpoles; they have no legs or lungs, but they breathe through their gills, and swim by moving their tails. As they grow, they become "new creatures," legs and lungs develop and the tails and gills disappear.

II Corinthians 5:17 tells us that believers are also "new creations" new creation in Christ!

II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Genesis 1:24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.
