Description

one live lt salamander crossing the road, made it and crawled away in the dark before I got a picture; one dead, smashed but green head and back marking (although the green doesn't show well in image), intercostal grooves (ventral image) excludes other possibilities; the 4th hind toe not especially long, but in looking through the substantial collection here at the Slater Museum smaller individuals have equal length hind 3rd & 4th toes, not sure when the longer 4th develops.

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.
