Default Winter Salamanders

Winter is not salamander watching season here in East Tennessee. Most of our tailed amphibians are hidden deep in the ground, or deep inside rotten logs, snoozing away the dark months far from prying eyes. But sometimes these cold-blooded sleepers get surprised. Got a call at the home park the other day from someone who accidentally dug up some Spotted Salamanders while renovating a basement.

Of course, we were glad to accept these slippery characters for relocation.

Spotted Salamanders are large - nearly 10 inches long.

They seem to be comfortable in their new home - out in one of our park's more remote wetland areas.
