Salamander Selfie

If salamanders had cell phones this is what a 'selfie' would look like. This one is a Wehrle's Salamander photographed near Rochester Mills, PA. Only the top of the jaw opens to allow its tounge to flick out and catch prey. Salamanders will pretty much eat anything they can get in their months but primarily they feed on ants, beetles, worms and any bugs that crawl around the forest floor.
