The salamander can walk unharmed through fire. It is so cold it can eve extinguish fire.
The image of the salamander is in the wrong location on this page. It is at the bottom of the page in the chapter on the newt (stellio) instead of in the salamander chapter; the illustration for the newt is where this one should be. The salamander and the newt are both sometimes called stellio, which may have confused the artist.
