Description: burn, damage to the tissues of the amphibian body by thermal (high temperature, chemical, electrical or radiation exposure.
There are 4 degrees of burns:
1st - redness of the skin, swelling and soreness at the site of the burn (healing in 2-3 days);
2nd - the formation of blisters at the site of the burn, edema (healing in 7-10 days);
3rd - skin necrosis with rejection and the formation of long-term non-healing ulcers;
4th - charring of the skin and tissues, with extensive and deep burns, animals often die.

The reasons:poor insulation of heating and lighting devices, faulty electrical wiring (electrical burns) and water supply systems (hot water burns), ultraviolet radiation (radiation burns), contact with reactive substances (chemical burns). The most common reason is poor insulation of heating devices (in tree frogs: tree frogs, tree frogs, etc.). Amphibians get burned when jumping on a heating element if it is not protected, or when a frog gets stuck between the heater and the wall of the enclosure. In accordance with this, such burns are localized on the belly or on the back. Chemical burns occur as a result of direct action on the skin of an animal of certain aggressive substances (acids, alkalis, etc.). Amphibians are especially sensitive to chemicals. Even a minimal concentration of these substances causes them a first degree burn,and when substances of significant concentration come into contact with the skin, it leads to the death of the animal.
Treatment: Usually, in amphibians, burns are not treated, due to their high regenerative capacity. The burn area is treated with mild antiseptics such as Betadine or Pevidin (Vetasept, Vetidin).

Burns are very common in cats . They can be caused by thermal, chemical or electrical (electric shock) effects. The severity of a thermal (heat) burn in cats can easily be underestimated as it differs to some extent from a similar burn in humans
Description: chytrid fungi (mostly aquatic organisms) are a group of lower fungi of microscopic size and primitive organization, mostly unicellular and mononuclear, living parasitically, and sometimes saprophytic on various aquatic plants, especially on algae, as well as on small aquatic animals
What is the use of them? Who might like them? In everyday life, you can often hear how many express their unflattering attitude towards amphibians. Some despise them, others disdain or, others are indifferent to them. Among the people, amphibians have never enjoyed love
Amphibians, or amphibians, are the first terrestrial vertebrates that still retain significant connections with the aquatic environment. In most species, eggs (eggs) are devoid of dense membranes and can only develop in water. Each egg is surrounded by a transparent mucous membrane that swells in water
Despite the large number of species - about 2100, the general appearance and structure of tailless amphibians are of the same type : the neck is not expressed, the wide head imperceptibly passes into a short, slightly flattened body; adults have no tail; the hind limbs are 2-3 times longer than the front ones, have an additional section - the tarsus
