Salamandra salamandra
The Fire Salamander is a common amphibious urodela that live in the humid forests of Europe. Like the common toad, it’s not difficult to see it when the day is rainy or very humid. At the picture we can see a photographed at specimen a Montseny’s Beech’s forest, at the north of Barcelona city.

Salamandra salamandra
La salamandra és un amfibi urodel, a Catalunya comú als boscos humids europeus a una certa altitud, a l'igual que d'altres espècies com ara el gripau comú és fàcil veure’l en dies plujosos o d’humitat molt alta. Darrera de l'ull es veu la glàndula paratoidea amb els porus ben visibles. Les glàndules paratoidea i les dorsals i costals segreguen un verí neurotòxic que conté l'alcaloide salmandrina, el verí és inofensiu per l'espècie humana a menys que entri en contacte amb les mucoses. A la foto es pot observar un exemplar fotografiada en una fageda del Montseny, al nord de Barcelona. Setembre de 2006.

Hola Ferran,
