Cave Salamander

Eurycea lucifuga

Notes:

It can be found in caves (usually limestone); also rocky streams and springs, and wooded areas and fields, usually near caves or limestone outcrops. It hides under objects during day in non-cave areas, except in wet weather when it may be found in the open. Eggs are laid in cave streams or pools, springs, or in rocky streams outside caves. Larvae remain in cave pools until winter or early spring when pools begin to overflow; larvae washed into larger streams, where they remain until metamorphosis.
