  Salamander \Sal"a*man`der\, n. [F. salamandre, L. salamandra,
     Gr. ?; cf. Per. samander, samandel.]
     1. (Zool.) Any one of numerous species of Urodela, belonging
        to Salamandra, Amblystoma, Plethodon, and various
        allied genera, especially those that are more or less
        terrestrial in their habits.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The salamanders have, like lizards, an elongated body,
           four feet, and a long tail, but are destitute of
           scales. They are true Amphibia, related to the frogs.
           Formerly, it was a superstition that the salamander
           could live in fire without harm, and even extinguish it
           by the natural coldness of its body.
           [1913 Webster]

                 Whereas it is commonly said that a salamander
                 extinguisheth fire, we have found by experience
                 that on hot coals, it dieth immediately. --Sir T.
                                                    Browne.
