(1) By one count, 1 in 3 of the 5,743 known species of frog, toad, salamander , and other amphibians are dwindling.(2) Remove pork from cooking liquid, cut into cubes and heat under salamander or broiler until sizzling.(3) Remove from oven and place under salamander until golden brown.(4) If you don't own a 1.75m tall machine from Catalonia but have a large enough salamander you can mimic, but not match, this method by grilling entire joints: legs of lamb, ribs of beef, suckling pigs, etc.(5) Place gratineed stacks under a salamander or broiler until top is browned.(6) The familiar frogs, toads, and salamanders have been present since at least the Jurassic Period.(7) But the play really belongs to Marian Seldes, who floats, hovers, slithers, twists into salamandrine shapes, while enunciating with magnificent mellifluousness and perfect, usually hilarious timing.(8) These salamanders undergo a typical amphibian life cycle, wherein they hatch from the egg in an aquatic-larval form and eventually undergo a metamorphosis through which they achieve a terrestrial adult form.(9) While salamanders with ballistic tongue projection rarely miss their target, frogs that use ballistic projection can be highly inaccurate.(10) The ├ö├ç├┐true salamanders├ö├ç├û tend to be smooth skinned, while the newts are unlike all other salamanders in having rough skin that is not slimy.(11) Hardy's dual diction choices, of ├ö├ç├┐pyres├ö├ç├û and ├ö├ç├┐ salamandrine fires,├ö├ç├û conveys rapid, chaotic change that the Titanic undergoes from the fiery creation of the steel chambers to their destruction on the metaphorical "pyres," their death and destruction at the hands of the sea.(12) The study finds 122 species of frogs, toads, salamanders and legless amphibians have probably become extinct since 1980 and warns that a third of all amphibian species currently face the same fate.(13) A number of salamanders , such as the North American ├ö├ç├┐mudpuppy├ö├ç├û and the Mexican axolotl, develop legs but retain their larval gills and stay in the water throughout their lifetimes.(14) To avoid predators, some animals - like some snakes, salamanders or frogs - restrict their movements under a full moon and tend to hunt more on moonless nights.(15) Gardener snakes, grass snakes, ground beetles, box turtles, salamanders , ducks, and larvae of lightning bugs all feed on snails.(16) Interestingly, while some amphibians like newts and salamanders are very effective at regenerating limbs, they are not as effective at regenerating tissue to repair damaged internal organs.
