The salamander (speleomantes ambrosi) is a not very amphibious amphibian that may be found in damp rock debris, or in damp rocky ravines or caves.
It is a species with essentially troglophile habits, meaning that it lives in caves and holes, though it is possible to see it in the open on particularly wet days. In fact, it loves an environment with a very high level of humidity.
It lays its eggs in the damp substrate of the rocks or in a crack. The eggs are never very numerous and the female takes extraordinary care of them. She remains in the neighbourhood of the eggs and looks after them until they open, about a year later. Such care is certainly unusual in an animal of this kind, which normally tend not to worry too much about the eggs after laying them.
