Marbled Salamander

Ambystoma opacum

Description:

Another marbled sally... they are just so photogenic :)

Notes:

This species is the only mole salamander (ambystomatid) in the southeast that guards their clutch once their eggs are laid. They are especially easy to photograph if they do have eggs nearby, because they won't leave them for anything!
