Spotted Salamander Returning to its Winter Burrow

Spotted Salamanders are well-known for their annual Spring migration to vernal pools but some wait until the Fall to begin their trek back to their winter burrows. Most Spotteds migrate back to their burrows just a few days after mating, this one waited until late October to make its journey.
