Reptiles have clawed feet, amphibians usually have web-like feet or no claws. Reptiles are mostly land animals that thrive in hot climates, amphibians live in the water or very close to the water, they usually stay out of direct sun, they prefer a dark moist area. Reptiles have hard-dry skin, amphibians soft skin that must stay moist to enable them to breathe.
