A Maltese Salamander stuck in a glass bottle

My friend and I were on a trip to island of Malta. One of our days exploring the cliff side of the Golden Beaches, we stumble upon two salamanders stuck in a glass bottle unable to escape on their own. We believe they were in there for the water but could not figure out how to escape. We both took our pictures then helped the two little guys out!
