I found a young (maybe morphed just this year) Ambystoma maculatum or spotted salamander here! I haven't seen one of these babies in years! I have only seen large adults in my town and are EXTEMELY rare here. Well this little guy (or girl, I didn't touch it just to check) made me so happy! Our water here is normally filthy and gross and most amphibians can't survive in. This means that some of my towns vernal pools is clean and they are breeding! I can't wait for spring so I can look for some larvae!
Well here is spot!
