A very attractive species, the spotted salamander sadly is another species being over collected for the pet trade, and
because of over collection, populations have greatly declined in some regions of eastern U.S. The spotted salamander is darkish
gray to black in color with orange to yellow spots. It may live twenty years or longer!
Grows to about 9 inches in length.
Family: Mole Salamander (Ambystomatidae)
