I found the Two-lined Salamander under a small piece of wet rotting wood, in a very condensed area of the woods. The area in which the salamander was found is very moist and damp. They are many deep puddles for water in or around the area which the salamander was found. Possibly a common place for the species to lay its eggs.
Caught in stream with backpack electrofisher while surveying fishes.
Several large adults, some exceeding 5". Many larvae and sub adults as well.
Found in the River Run pool and saved by my daughter, Julia!
Sorry - no good shots...it was a quick one.
