Three-lined Salamander

Eurycea guttolineata


Mid-sized, slender, stream salamanders, ranging from 4 - 6.25 in (10 - 15.9 cm). They are tan to light yellow with a long tail (2/3 of total body length) and three bold black longitudinal stripes running from the eyes to the tail. The underside is boldly marked with black and white marbling.


This individual was spotted just along a stream bank during a plot survey for herps in Horseshoe Bend National Military Park, AL. Nearly always found near water. Prime habitats include streams in bottomland hardwood forest and the edges of cypress swamps.They are found throughout the Southeast US, except for southern Georgia and most of Peninsular Florida.

Jakubko, this individual was probably around 10-12 cm. I did not realize I had no information on this species until I saw your comment! Thanks!
