Default Re: Salamanders

Fire salamanders can squirt their venom up to 2 metres (picture from http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.230...uid=2474089467 ). You wouldn't want that in your eye.

I can recommend Miss E. A. Ormerod's article from 1873, describing what it's like to chew on a crested newt:
Observations on the Cutaneous Exudation of the Triton cristatus, or Great Water-Newt. By Miss Eleanor A. Ormerod.
