Description

These two are examples of the paedomorphic or neotenic form of the Northwestern Salamander. It is a mature adult with adolescent features in this case gills and lives a fully aquatic life. We observed one male (smaller on the left) and one female (larger on the right). They were found by two of our volunteers through Point Defiance Zoo & Aquariums Amphibian Egg Mass Monitoring Program.

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.
