Definitions for "Amplexus"
Sexual embrace of amphibians; the grasping of the female's body by the male's forelimbs from a dorsal position. The grip is strong, and is not released until oviposition is completed. There are two principal types: axillary (pectoral), in which the grip is just behind the forelimbs, and inguinal (pelvic), with the grip just before the hindlimbs.
The mating embrace of amphibians prior to fertilization of eggs. Amplexus is most noted in frogs and newts, some of which may remain in amplexus for several hours.
