Observer: Bruce Lewis

Observation Time: 4:00 p.m.
Observation Location: Moose Hill St. near TTOR’s Moose Hill Farm
Common Name: Yellow Spotted Salamander
Scientific Name: Ambystoma maculatum
Comments: It’s generally best not to handle amphibians, so I left it alone.
Salamanders typically do not emerge until “Big Night” – the first rainy night after the snow melts in late March. This specimen was crawling around while it was snowing.
