Long-toed Salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum)





We found this little guy in the grass behind the cabin. We picked him up to identify him, then let him go on his way. These amphibians are very important to our eco-system as they consume insects and other invertebrates. As is the case with most of the wildlife we live beside, they are harmless, and very beneficial!
