Our salamander surveys are drawing to a close. We will miss going off the beaten path in the name of science. We have learned so much and are truly grateful that we had this opportunity. Last week, we were fortunate to find a salamander that we had yet to meet in our park, the two lined salamander.
This little guy played hide and seek with us for a while, and it took us a few minutes to capture him after we spotted him. The two lined salamander is characterized by it bright yellow underbelly. They can either be found in streams or in the woods nearby. This particular one was only about 3 inches long, but he brought us great joy because he was something we hadn't seen before.
