Distribution[edit]

Salamanders may actively defend themselves once they are grasped by a predator. Besides various antipredator postures S. salamandra adults are able to extrude heavy toxic skin secretions, e.g. the neurotoxic alkaloid Samandarin.

This alkaloid causes strong muscle convulsions and high-blood pressure combined with hyperventilation in all vertebrates.
