Salamander

Salamander is the common name applied to approximately 500 amphibian vertebrates with slender bodies, short legs, and long tails.

The moist skin of the amphibians limits them to habitats either near water or under some protection on moist ground, usually in a forest.

They are capable of regenerating lost limbs.
