Large salamanders are capable of being very dangerous, with them attacking prey using their long tongues and tails. They also defend themselves with intense elemental magic. Some salamanders have a knack for one particular brand of elemental magic. It's not too unusual to find a salamander that is talented primarily in producing natural shock, flame or frost magic instead of utilizing all three in equal measure. The toxin skin salamander is a breed that relies on venom instead of magic. Scholars studying arcane husbandry have learned of Ayleid rituals that grant luminescent qualities to common salamanders.
