    The last quote was given to show an example of the specific transitions listed. The article is part of a much larger FAQ and has links to the rest.

    I find it interesting that the earliest amphibians often had more than 5 toes... one (I'll find the species name and specifics later if wanted.) had ten or more toes per limb.. I've often wondered what led to the specific selection of five toes as opposed to say 7?

    Well, you say most. That mean`s some at least had 5 toes. What`s to say the 5 toed amphibians were favored through natural selection? I`m not basing this off anything I`ve read (I`ve never heard of the question) but that`s how evolution would explain it, I`m fairly certain. Correct me if I`m wrong, please. :)
