A baby salamander preserved in amber presents a scientific surprise, especially since it was discovered in a place where there are no known salamanders.
The Salamandra robotica II mimics a salamander's movements by swimming, crawling, and walking.
The Salamander Robot is an experimental machine that has been developed at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique F\351d\351rale de Lausanne). It can operate in three modes: swimming, slithering and walking. See the device in action, and find out why it's a technological first. CNET News.com's Zamir Haider reports.
