Swell Salamanders

Salamanders are very pretty, very cool amphibians. There’s such variety in them and yet they’re all similar. I decided to include them mostly because I think they’re neat.

There are many species of salamanders all over the world. All salamanders
are amphibians. Some spend most of their lives on land, some switch between
the water and land, and others never leave the water. Some salamanders that
don’t leave the water, such as sirens, do not have hind limbs, but most have
four legs. Many species have a prehensile tail, which helps it climb trees.
Other species have a flat tail for swimming. Some have gills, others have
lungs, still others breathe through their skin. All baby salamanders breath
through gills and are aquatic. Some are brightly colored to tell predators they
taste bad, while others blend right in!
