Iberian ribbed newt

Pleurodeles waltl

Notes:

This place is actually a structure related to some hidrologic thing, but it is like a ditch about 1,5m deep. Salamanders usually fall there and can't climb back out, so they end up drying to death. Today I found this litlle guy in bad shape, quite dehidrated. Took a few pics and took him to the nearest water (with some P. perezi). Hoping for its best, with low expectations though...
