Amphibians and reptiles are masters of survival because they've devised extraordinary tricks and strategies.

A pebble toad escapes a tarantula by curling into a ball and bouncing down a rock face; the basilisk lizard literally runs on water; and a highly venomous sea snake lays its eggs in a safe air-filled cavern underwater.
