Snake Lake (Google, OSM)

Description

Paedomorphic adult found in the lake. Many paedomorphic Northwestern Salamanders were found during an evening night hike. A citizen science team from the Tacoma Nature Center recently found over 80 egg masses in one of their six plots but only two terrestrial adults have been observed by staff and volunteers over the last several years. We have always assumed the lake would house Northwestern Salamanders that expressed paedomorphism and tonight defiantly proved it.

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.

No range data available.
