|MY FIRST TON OF WOOD ARRIVED YESTERDAY.. COULD IT BE!|
A Salamander has lizard-like appearance with very slender body.
short noses and long tails. Most Salamanders have 4 toes on their front legs and 5 toes on their rear legs. They live near water , their skin is moist. They are fascinating. It head turned slowly to look at me its eyes had lit up with the flash of the camera. Its deep black body with the bright yellow spots standing still as though it was playing dead. They move slowly. At one point, I thought it was going to turn back and come closer to me. I sure was ready to run inside.
Some Salamander species take to the water intermittently, and some are entirely terrestial as adults.
Unique amongs vertebrates, they are capable of regenerating lost limbs as well as other body parts. Many members of the "Salamandridae" are know as " Newts".
I am sure that most have you have seen many of them before.! This as i said, is my second one. Other than on national geographic.
