Description: Red salamanders are one of the largest stream salamanders in our region (4 - 6 in; 10 -15 cm). They are stout-bodied and short-tailed (tail length about 80% of snout-vent length). Coloration is bright red to reddish orange with many irregularly rounded, black spots with a somewhat lighter belly.
