Caption: Salamander. Close-up of a salamander (Bolitoglossum sp.) in Jatun Sacha rainforest reserve, Ecuador. Salamanders are lizard-like amphibians that live in wet forests. Many species are nocturnal, spending the day hidden under litter on the forest floor and emerging at night to hunt slugs, snails and other small invertebrates. Unlike lizards, salamanders have moist skin through which they breathe and absorb moisture. Some species secrete a toxin in the skin but most are harmless to humans.
