According to legend the salamander was a creature which thrived in fire, but died when exposed
to air. Not this one. It was killed 160 million years ago by a rain of fire from a volcano in what is now
Inner Mongolia, in Northern China. Traces of soft tissue are preserved only rarely in amphibian fossils, but
in this case, the detail is exquisite. The animal's gills can be seen protruding from its head. The last meal
is visible in its stomach. The delicate folds of its tail are as clear as if it was still swimming. The
specimen is one of about 200 fossil salamanders found in the area. The discovery was made by scientists from
Peking University in China.
