Amphiuma meansAmphiuma pholeterAmphiuma tridactylum
Amphiuma is a genus of aquatic salamanders from the United States, the only extant genus within the family Amphiumidae /æmfᵻˈjuːmᵻdiː/. They are also known to fishermen as “conger eels” or “Congo snakes”, which are zoologically incorrect designations, with amphiumas being salamanders, and not reptiles, nor fish. Amphiuma exhibits one of the largest complements of DNA in the living world, around 25 times more than a human.
Amphiumas have an elongated body, generally grey-black in color. They do have legs, but they are merely vestigial and very small. While amphiumas can be up to 116 cm (46 in) long, their legs measure only up to about 2 cm (0.79 in). It is because of this that they are often mistaken for eels or snakes. They also lack eyelids and a tongue. Amphiumas also have a lateral line visible on the sides of their bodies, which are capable of detecting movement and are used in aid of hunting.
