It is very cool that you were able to spot one. I hope that you will continue adding your spottings to Project Noah. It is terrific to see animals from around the globe and people connecting with nature! Please be sure to update the ID on this one. Jody correctly identified this species.

You can reorder images by clicking on the thumbnail in 'Edit this spotting' and dragging it amongst the other images. I did it for you here :)

This is also the only newt you can find in the eastern US.

This is an Eastern Red Spotted Newt (Notophthalmus virudescens). This is in the Red Eft terrestrial stage. This is not quite an adult, you can think of it as a teenage newt that isn't ready to return to water and breed.

Hey Carla, could you change the order so that the second one is placed first; so it will be the display picture for your spotting. You can change it using "Edit this spotting" and dragging the images to reorder. If you need help with that please let me know.
