Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Pseudotriton montanus diastictus
Midland Mud Salamander

Jefferson Co., Kentucky
May 6, 2006

I found this little beauty in a ditch next to a two-lane road, hiding under a small section of log just a few inches away from the asphalt shoulder.

It was interesting to pass though the area again a few days later, and stop on a whim for another look. The muddie was still there under its log.
