THE SALAMANDER AT CHAMBORD
Yellow and black, the spotted salamander is a species of urodela of the Salamandridae family. It is the major emblem of François I. Carved in detail in the tufa stone at Chambord, the animal has always been a character in its own right on the estate.
In the castle, it is possible to see more than 300 salamanders on the ceilings and walls. It is topped by a crown bearing the motto Francis I "Nutrisco et Extinguo", which means "I feed on the good fire, I extinguish the bad". She is represented spitting drops of water to extinguish the bad fire or swallowing the flames to feed on the good fire. In the park, it is possible to see the animal in the wetlands of the forest of Chambord.
Today, it is also an outstanding discovery companion for all children.
