I saw a dead arboreal salamander in the ivy a couple of mornings ago, not far from where I found the dead bee. I didn't even know there were salamanders in the ivy. I would have thought it's not wet enough for them in there.
I wish I could have seen it alive.
I took another look at the carcass yesterday, and I saw a three-band garden slug and several terrestrial leeches feeding on it.
Today I found it covered in ants, its forelegs gone and its tail decomposed down to the vertebrae.
The cycle of life.
