Anurans exhibit modes of fertilization which place them in a category between true aquatic and true internal fertilizers. Their fertilization environments range from aquatic to terrestrial.

The ranines occupy fertilization environments within bodies of water (aquatic) and the African rhacophorids in a foam nest on a tree branch (terrestrial).
