Description

Found at an off stream connecting to Weir creek near weir hot spring in the Clearwater National Forest. Most of them were found under large rocks and wood. The largest one was found .5 miles up the stream from the starting site near some eggs located next to and slightly hidden by a rock. We found two rocky Mt. Tailed frog tadpoles but no mature anuran.

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.
