Salamanders are small lizard-like amphibians having moist, porous scaleless skin and four, often weak or rudimentary legs.  Although they resemble lizards, they lack the scales, claws and external ear openings of the reptile group.  Salamanders are carnivorous and most lay their eggs in water.  They are secretive, typically nocturnal and voiceless.
