  6. Så roligt med en vattensalamander - fint fångad! Vi hade salamander i dammen på landet tidigare men de har försvunnit numera.

  8. Great photos of the newt, it looks almost like it is flying. I used to have a pair of different salamanders as pets in an aquarium that would eat regular fish food.

  11. I used to see lots of them at summer camp when I was little. I think ours (Maryland, U.S. back then) were slightly different...but not by a lot!
