Description

One of my most exciting finds of 2014. I can't say it was the most difficult observation to photograph because birds fly away, but finding this guy was a challenge. Although, as I was walking the trail with my headlamp, I just happened to notice this Spotted Salamander with it's head popping out from a hole under a tree. I had been on this trail all summer long and this was my first observation on this trail. I had seen one previously in the same state park, but on a different trail. Because of the position of the salamander in the opening of the hole which was along the root system of the tree, I was unable to get my fixed flash to capture the upper part of the salamander easily but was able to get enough of it for identification.

Description from Wikipedia

The mole salamanders (genus Ambystoma) are a group of salamanders endemic to North America, the only genus in the family Ambystomatidae. The group has become famous due to the presence of the axolotl (A. mexicanum), widely used in research, and the tiger salamander (A. tigrinum, A. mavortium) which is the official amphibian of many states, and often sold as a pet.
