The conditions seemed right so I was hoping to find a tiger salamander and sure enough as soon as I parked by the pond I found this skinny little guy staring back at me. 2 years in a row finding live tigers at the same place, the population must be healthy.
Found several of these larvae and adults in the woods as well (with http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/549287)

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.
