Salamanders

Salamanders are amphibians commonly mistaken for lizards. All species of salamander are either aquatic or semi-aquatic, utilizing water to hunt and lay their eggs. The salamander’s ability to detach and then regenerate body parts aids it in escaping predators. Salamanders are known for their "slimy" feel because they secrete mucus in order to regulate their internal water levels on dry land.
