Marbled Salamander

Ambystoma opacum

Description:

Unlike other members of the genus Ambystoma, Marbled salamanders are fall breeders. In the fall females lay their eggs in depressions in the ground that will eventually fill with water by spring. The larvae gain an advantage by feeding on other (much smaller) amphibian larvae in the spring, and metamorph long before other species.

Habitat:

Vernal pool
