I found this little one near my front door and relocated to a more moist around.
I was sorry to see remains of this little salamander, victim of a vehicle. I found a second dead individual of this species about 0.1 miles north of this one. The second dead salamander also as the apparent victim of a vehicle.
The spotted salamander or yellow-spotted salamander (Ambystoma maculatum) is a mole salamander common in the eastern United States and Canada. The spotted salamander is the state amphibian of South Carolina. This salamander ranges from Nova Scotia, to Lake Superior, to southern Georgia and Texas. Its embryos have been found to have symbiotic algae living inside them.
