Caption: Salamander. View of a midland mud salamander (Pseudotrition montanus diastictus) on a muddy forest floor. Salamanders are lizard-like amphibians that live in swamps and wet forests. This mud salamander is mainly nocturnal, spending the day hidden in mud under litter on the forest floor. At night they emerge to hunt slugs, snails and other small invertebrates. Unlike lizards, salamanders have moist skin through which they breathe and absorb moisture.
