blotched tiger salamander Ambystoma mavortium ssp. melanostictum

Observer

Description

- I found wild ambystoma mavortium melanostictum on rainy evening in yard.

- He did not look very old, I suspect he recently morphed not too long before found.

- The area is very suburban, so unsure where he originated.

- I captivated him. Currently he's grown a lot and is very healthy.

- I learned a lot about herping since obtaining him, and am interested in observing animals in their natural wild state.

-Photos: First two were taken the night I found him (no natural shots, sorry). Last few were taken recently whilst captive.
