Great shots Sergť and Paul. In both cases is the tail static or moving? I would have expected more of an unken response from a cynops considering itís ventral colouring. Iím guessing toxic concentrations are higher in the tail for both these animals and there is a clear desire to protect the head. I heard that Salamandra were capable of spraying toxins from their paratoids and had special muscles for this purpose, anyone ever seen this? It would explain the tilted body in Wouterís photo.
