Easily spotted in a small depression on a rocky outcropping near where a creek crosses a highway.
Found at Bark Camp Lake beneath a fallen tree.
Since these photos were taken, a house was built on this property. I don't know if the development has affected this small, isolated population of green salamanders or not.
Green Salamander currently living under a flowerpot outside my back door.
The green salamander (Aneides aeneus) is a member of the lungless salamanders, family Plethodontidae. It is the only member of the Aneides genus that inhabits the Eastern United States (all other Aneides salamanders are found in the west). Rarely seen in the field, the green salamander is an extremely habitat-specific species that is seldom found away from its preferred surroundings: moist, shaded rock crevices.
