Observer: Bruce Lewis

Observation Date: 3/13/22

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.
