Extra Information

The Devonian time period is sometimes called the “Age of the Fishes”. The first amphibians did have legs. They had legs but they spent most of their lives in the water. The amphibians only left the water to escape predators. The first amphibians breathed through simple lungs and their skin. The first Ammonoids also appeared in the Devonian time period. It was named the Devonian time period because the first fossils were studied in Devon, England.
