The spotted salamander is about 5.9–9.8 in long. They are stout, like most mole salamanders, and have a wide snout. The spotted salamander's main color is black, but can sometimes be a blueish black, dark grey, dark green, or even dark brown. There are two rows of yellowish orange spots that run from the top of the head to the tip of the tail. These rows are uneven. Interestingly, the spotted salamander's spots near the top of the head are more orange, while the spots on the rest of its body are more yellow. The underside of the spotted salamander is slate gray and pink.
