Four-toed Salamander

Four-toed Salamander

The Four-toed Salamander is named for having four toes on its hind feet. Most salamanders have five toes on their hind feet. They prefer areas with moss and nearby vernal pools. Their bellies are white with black flecking, an easy way to identify them for certain. They are our smallest salamander species, rarely reaching more than 3" in length,
