Salamander Pond


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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.

First Broadcast: 1997
Producer: Jim Newman
