Salamander Pond

Salamanders, frogs, beetles, spiders and other creatures feed, reproduce and die in the surpringly complex world of a small suburban pond. A herpetologist from Portland Community College points out the features of a rough-skinned salamander, which lives part time underwater and is protected from predators by a powerful toxin. Warning: graphic newt sex scene and explicit snail sex talk.
