Could be P. glutinosus, tough to say from this photo, was it found on this log?

No worries! Unfortunately Tennessee has the most salamanders of any state in the US, and salamanders are hard for me to ID. It looks like it might be in the Genus Plethodon though. Hopefully someone else can help you :)

Oops! I knew that! LOL! Must have had reptiles on the brain...I had just found a snake on my front porch before I posted the salamander. Thanks for correcting it!

I have moved this to amphibians, salamanders are not reptiles.
