The skin secretions produced by many salamanders contain chemicals which discourage predators from eating them. This is because it gives the salamander a bad flavor, or makes it toxic. Another purpose of the secretions is probably to fend off dessication (drying-out). Like many other amphibians, salamanders must keep their skin moist in order to remain healthy. These secretions help keep their skin wet.
