Unknown spotting


Brownish salamander


Found in the Niagara gorge close by the Niagara river.


I'm wondering if this is the northern dusty salamander that is endangered in the Niagara region

I can't find any links that say duskies are found anywhere near northern Wisconsin? This guy doesn't have the shape of a Desmognathus anyways, it has the shape of a Plethodon. And the only one in Wisconsin is a redback, and since I don't see a red back that would mean it's a lead-back phase of the red back. Lighting is a bit off though so it may have a red back that I can't see, but still a redback!
