beautiful shot of a fire salamander, subspecies Salamandra salamandra terrestris with two yellow interrupted bands showin on the back rather than yellow dots. did you see it during the day or in the evening? apparently the species with the bands occurs up to the Pyrenees from Switzerland, wereas the dotted subspecies occurs more in Eastern Europe. They can get very old, 20 years, in captivity even 50! and they eat slugs!!
it was late afternoon - around 6.30Which one do you think this is? Loking at this it seems to have dotted bands.
i didn't notice that you said 'eats slugs': a useful friend to cultivate!!
