It had a strong backbone, four short, sturdy legs, and a short tail, Unlike other amphibians, Seymouria had relatively shorter jaws, ears marked by a notch, and the skull had fewer bones. Its long bones feet and digits were almost like that of a reptile. Seymouria laid its eggs in water. When they hatched, the young changed into their adult shapes like modern-day frogs change from tadpoles to adults.
