Red Spotted Newt

Notophthalmus viridescens viridescens

Description:

Eastern Newts are common throughout the Eastern US, and most live in fish free ponds though they are able to tolerate fish due to their toxic skin. It is breeding season now and this odd position is part of their courting behavior.

Habitat:

Vernal pool
