Holy shit! So get this... This is the #MagicFountain I have posted about before. This water has been used for generations to heal skin conditions. When I first heard about it I assume it was the mineral content, like some springs that have high concentration of selenium, I now have a new theory! That Salamander pictured there is the "Fire Salamander" prevalent throughout Europe. The Fire Salamander, or #SalamandraSalamandra has yellow spots on it's skin, these spots are glands for the #highlytoxic alkaloid steroidal #Salamandrin ! This toxin has an LD50 of 70 µg/kg in mice and 700µg/kg in dogs , and causes convulsions, hypertension, hyperventilation and eventually death by respiratory paralysis ... But it is also #antibacterial and #antifungal and can be absorb #transdermal ! If you look in the fountain you will see a juvenile #FireSalamander (there were several). This magic fountain is their #vernalpool ! These #dermatological benefits, I hypothesize, are a consequence/benefit of this #steroidal #toxin ! I'll never know if this is true or not, so I will file it in my mind as "As true as anything else I can't prove"...or absolutely true 😂👍 I dunked my hat in the pool prior to continuing my run, I probably wouldn't have done that had I known. 🦎 Is it tough to breath in here!? Let the #hypochondria commence! 👨🏼🔬🔥🦎☠️ #SheTurnedMeIntoANewt .... #IGotBetter !
